Opening event on 6pm Friday 16 March.

For twenty-five years Artspace has been one of the leading contemporary art galleries in New Zealand. To mark this silver anniversary, Artspace will present the exhibition every cloud has a silver lining.

From the outset Artspace was going to be something different, its three founders (Mary-Louise Browne, Wystan Curnow and Sandi Morrison) recognised the need for an alternative space, somewhere that would exhibit contemporary art work unlikely to be accommodated in the other, more conservative art galleries that were operating in Auckland at that time.

Artspace was formed in 1987, it has since had four different venues, moving from Federal Street to Quay Street via the George Fraser Gallery in Princes Street, ending up in Karangahape Road, and has been led by eight directors: Mary-Louise Browne, Priscilla Pitts, Lara Bowen, Robert Leonard, Tobias Berger, Brian Butler, Emma Bugden and Caterina Riva, each of whom offered a passionate perspective on contemporary art and its shifting conditions.

Every cloud has a silver lining will present documentation as well as re-purpose elements of key exhibitions throughout the years. It will celebrate the many artists, curators, art critics and writers that helped shape the organisation into the major force in contemporary art that it is today and also challenge others to ensure that it remains so.
