We’re building a spectacular new art gallery and making changes online.
The Arts Te Papa website will be shutting down soon, but head to Collections Online to find your favourite works from New Zealand’s national art collection.
Contemporary gallery, Level 5, Te PapaCurrent Exhibition
Homes are places to retreat to. But they also reflect how we’d like to be seen. The contemporary art in this exhibition explores what happens when home life goes ‘on display’.
With home ownership increasingly out of reach for New Zealanders, these uninhabited works are particularly poignant. These are spaces you might imagine living in, but never actually will – from mini ‘playhouses’ to dining rooms with desirable décor.
