Gus Fisher Gallery
Nestled in the heart of Auckland city centre’s central business district, Gus Fisher Gallery is a contemporary arts centre that showcases local and international art through boldly curated shows. It is the flagship art gallery for The University of Auckland and is housed in a 1934 Grade I listed heritage building that was formerly home to Radio 1YA and TVNZ. Gus Fisher Gallery reflects the pioneering spirit of its building’s history through a vibrant artistic programme that features contemporary art with a strength in artist’s film and video from 2019.
The gallery aims to create socially relevant exhibitions around pressing contemporary topics, showing work from a variety of well-known and emerging artists. Gus Fisher Gallery challenges the static ‘white cube’ gallery space with exhibitions that are fun, meaningful and appealing to a wide range of audiences in Tāmaki Makaurau and beyond.
