Ahuriri Contemporary is a new gallery space in Ahuriri Napier. It will showcase artwork rarely seen in the region and act as a meeting place for dialogue and exchange between visiting artists and diverse local communities. The gallery will also feature special projects with selected local artists.
Ahuriri Contemporary is an initiative of Boyd-Dunlop Gallery and is located above their main exhibition space. While works exhibited may be available for purchase, Ahuriri Contemporary’s approach is project-based – prioritising innovative, collaborative, and site-responsive exhibitions.
Alongside addressing audiences across Aotearoa, the gallery hopes its dynamic exhibition program will reflect and respond to Ahuriri’s diverse communities, culture, histories and landscapes in new ways.
The gallery will host projects by invitation, collaboration, and proposal. It will also seek to collaborate with other commercial and public galleries, artist-run spaces and organisations in the development of its exhibition programme.
