“Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery is West Auckland's regional gallery, an institution locally rooted in West Auckland but globally minded.”
Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery is West Auckland's regional gallery. Te Uru is an institution locally rooted in West Auckland but globally minded. We have a distinctive West Auckland focus but a national and international perspective. Through our programmes, we create a world stage for art that is relevant to West Aucklanders, to put local art, artists and ideas in conversation and context with national and international developments in contemporary practice. We present a diverse programme of contemporary exhibitions, events and activities, including art, craft and design, to reflect and strengthen the full diversity of cultural identities, interests and potential of our community.
As a destination gallery, Te Uru operates from an award-winning building that is part of the recently re-opened Lopdell Precinct. The gallery originally opened in 1986 as the Waitemata City Arts and Cultural centre, later known as Lopdell House Gallery, sited in the historic Lopdell House building in the heart of Titirangi, gateway to the Waitakere rain forest and en route to Auckland's famous west coast beaches. From 2012, during an extensive redevelopment programme, the gallery delivered exhibitions and outreach style programmes from a temporary base in nearby New Lynn. We reopened as Te Uru on Saturday 1 November 2014 in our new purpose-built facilities alongside Lopdell House, offering extraordinary exhibitions and spectacular views of the surrounding area.
