About Our Galleries
UXBRIDGE is home to several Gallery spaces including the Malcolm Smith Gallery. Our galleries are wonderful spaces set to showcase contemporary art.
Named after the late local architect, community stalwart, and founding member of UXBRIDGE in 1981, the Malcolm Smith Gallery is a contemporary art space for the eastern suburbs of Auckland. Harnessing a belief in the transformative power of art, and through a range of contemporary art exhibitions which inspire and challenge its audiences, the Gallery strives to encourage dialogue, foster creativity, and explore meaningful new ideas with insight, imagination, and intelligence. Public engagement with contemporary art, artists, and ideas are at the core of the Gallery’s exhibition-making practice, because it strives to make contemporary art not only accessible but relevant to people from all walks of life. Seeking synergies between the local and the global, the Malcolm Smith Gallery foregrounds projects engaging with contemporary discourses in art and related fields reflective of the best in national work, thereby developing the practice and appreciation of contemporary art in East Auckland.
Another of our galleries is the UXBRIDGE Showcase, located in the main concourse thoroughfare. A unique concrete canvas, it highlights those exceptional pieces as standout in terms of what passes through the halls of UXBRIDGE. The Showcase has also been used in conjunction with the Malcolm Smith Gallery in the past to complement the work within, letting exhibitions expand beyond typical boundaries.
There are additional spaces throughout the centre which can be used from time to time for exhibitions. Take a look at our other spaces below, and get in contact with us to procure one of our stunning galleries.
