Govett-Brewster Art Gallery information
The Govett-Brewster Art Gallery is arguably the country’s best regional art gallery. Presenting contemporary – often experimental – local and international shows, it’s most famous for its connection with NZ sculptor, filmmaker and artist Len Lye (1901−80). His work is well represented here, with showings of his 1930s animation as well as sculpture and super-clever kinetic works. The glass-fronted Café Govett-Brewster is also here.
