LEADING THE WAY IN CONTEMPORARY ART
The Govett-Brewster building is currently closed and will be reopening as a new combined facility with the Len Lye Centre in 2015. Check www.govettbrewster.com for information about offsite projects and touring exhibitions. Cafe Govett-Brewster, on the corner of Queen and King streets, remains open for business seven days a week.
The Govett-Brewster is 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.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.Historically, the Monica Brewster Trust Deed established a close relationship between the Council and the gallery. That relationship remains intact and, in addition to providing core operational funding for the gallery, we have been the gallery's principal stakeholder and strategic partner since its opening in 1970.
We are also represented on the Len Lye Foundation.
