As New Zealand's leading contemporary art gallery we deliver three exhibition suites per year. In order for us to do this, parts of the building are closed at certain times of the year to enable the changeover of exhibitions. These times are around Mar/Apr, Jul/Aug and Nov/Dec.
If you're planning to visit around these times please check our website – our exhibitions pages will tell you when changeover is. We will always be open seven days a week though, with films and artworks for you to see.
Check out this video in which we take a look at some of the many aspects of changing exhibitions in an art museum. At the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Centre we change our exhibitions every four months and we de-install them and prepare for the new art works on a staggered time-line, so there's always something for visitors to experience.
