City Gallery City Gallery Wellington


City Gallery Wellington is a dynamic cultural presence in the capital city of Aotearoa New Zealand, showcasing contemporary art from New Zealand and around the world. It is a venue for the research, display and debate about modern and contemporary visual art.

Art nourishes our souls. Art has magical properties, it uplifts and transports our spirits. It fires our  imaginations, sparking new ways to see the world and think about how we occupy it.

City Gallery works collaboratively with artists, galleries, collectors and an extensive range of organisations and business partners to present exhibitions and events that are relevant to our lives today, test art’s boundaries, and challenge us.

City Gallery’s activities are designed to nurture curiosity in the ideas explored within contemporary art. Our exhibitions have an edge, they are canon shaping and add to the contemporary art narrative.
