Latest online readings ?
We display commissioned texts on our website that run as a parallel programme within Artspace to strengthen critical writing in Aotearoa, departing from the visual arts but not necessarily contained to it. Sometimes they provide context for our exhibitions, where at other times they frame the political realities of our environment providing creative cultural analysis or historical approaches to our times of now.
New Books at the Reading Room ?
The Artspace Reading Room is a free space accessible during the gallery’s open hours. A large selection of international and local art publications are available for study or recreational reading. Get in touch to enquire or request a book.
