New Zealand's premier contemporary art museum and home to the collection of modernist filmmaker and kinetic sculptor Len Lye.
The Gallery is committed to developing a contemporary art museum that is recognised internationally for its global vision and special commitment to the Pacific region.
In its buildings, the Gallery maintains and develops a contemporary art collection and presents a diverse programme of exhibitions and events. Through programmes that extend beyond its walls, the Gallery also aims to foster the development and interpretation of contemporary art by developing new audiences and new possibilities for artists within contemporary culture.
Admission to the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery is free, although visitor donations enable the Gallery to ensure the ongoing provision of dynamic programmes.
