As Covid-19 has brought uncertain times for the arts sector, a Gray Lynn art gallery has landed a new major sponsor.

The architectural and urban planning firm Architectus has joined us to help fund the gallery for the next three years.

Objectspace director Kim Paton says she is “proud of this partnership with Architectus, which strengthens the gallery’s links with the sector and will strengthen exhibition creation capacities”.

Principal Architect, James Mooney, says: “We are delighted to partner with the art institution Objectspace, to broaden the conversation around the built environment, its role in the cultural landscape and to support the creators and designers of Aotearoa.

“Last year we’ve all seen a wide range of creative New Zealanders’ responses to the challenge posed by the lockdown, and this year it’s no different. We look forward to working with an arts institution that promotes the square. of architecture, design and craftsmanship in our motu. “

The gallery opened in 2004 and focuses on design, crafts and architecture.

“Objectspace serves its audience and its communities, providing an environment where best practices and thoughts in design, craftsmanship and architecture can be experienced and used,” the gallery’s website states.

The gallery’s latest exhibit is Everybody WiNZ by artist Kauri Hawkins, which features a polished stone slot machine.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been tough on the arts sector, and the gallery is currently closed under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

After the initial 2020 lockdowns, the government announced a $ 175 million fund to support the creative industries.

The arts and design sector contributes nearly $ 11 billion annually to New Zealand’s gross domestic product and employs 90,000 people.
