Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, established in 1970, is New Zealand’s contemporary art museum and home to the work of Len Lye.
It is open six days: Sun, Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat 10am – 6pm; Thu 10am – 9pm; and closed Tuesdays. The latest addition to the Govett-Brewster – the Len Lye Centre – is New Zealand’s first institution dedicated to a single artist, the pioneering filmmaker and kinetic sculptor, Len Lye. The entrance to the combined art museum is on Queen St – entry is free with some charges for some events and activities.
Experience provocative work by New Zealand and international artists, quarterly-changing exhibitions, a regular event and education programme and late-nights on Thursdays. In the 62-seat Len Lye Centre Cinema, experience Len Lye’s films, local and international cinema, arthouse and experimental films, and regular film festival programming.
