Situated in an old radio station on Shortland Street, the Gus Fisher Gallery is the University of Auckland’s art gallery and part of the Centre for Art Studies. The Centre was established in 2005 to manage and develop the University’s extensive and valuable art collection, to co-ordinate the busy exhibition programme of the Gus Fisher Gallery, and to support and guide the activities of the online and onsite student-curated space, Window.
Established in 1966, the Art Collection consists of 1,600 works and is used as a resource for teaching, learning and research. The collection is continuously on loan to departments and faculties on all four campuses–Epsom, Tamaki, Grafton and the City Campus–as well as outposts of the University, such as the Marine Laboratory at Leigh. Consisting of major works by significant artists, including Frances Hodgkins, Colin McCahon and Ralph Hotere, the art collection is constantly moving as the campus develops.
