Welcome to Photospace Gallery
Photospace Gallery opened at 37 Courtenay Place, Wellington CBD, in December 1998 and it remains the only dealer gallery in the Wellington region (and, arguably, in New Zealand) dedicated to exhibiting contemporary New Zealand and international photography.
Exhibitions change monthly and feature works by leading and emerging artists from throughout New Zealand, and some by international exhibitors. The photography is wide-ranging in theme and technique, and includes colour, black & white, digital and silver-based photographs. While the gallery's focus is on fine prints, exhibitions also include documentary projects, installations, experimental works, various alternative processes, projection and video.
There is also a range of NZ photography books available for sale. And, at certain times (morning-lunchtime), it is possible to enjoy a coffee, made on the gallery's commercial espresso machine, while you browse the exhibition rooms.

Access: a gentle flight of stairs. No lift or disabled access, sorry. There is plenty of metered parking nearby during business hours, less later in the evening. The gallery is near the Courtenay Place bus stop, and there's a taxi rank just across the road.
Exhibiting at Photospace Gallery
While the gallery has a selection of established, regular exhibitors, the owner is open to receiving proposals from emerging and established artists and curators. If you are interested in exhibiting your work, or curating an exhibition at Photospace Gallery, here are a few guidelines. We would very much like to hear from you. We also exhibit artwork in mediums other than photography via Gilberd Marriott Gallery
These photos, taken with an old wide-angle film camera, show the gallery rooms, warts and all.
