Auckland’s Heart of the City will be blooming with creativity this Spring when ArtWeek in the City Centre returns with a vibrant programme of over 50 pop up exhibitions, galleries, installations, free art walks, artist talks, workshops, and more between 6-15 October 2023.

Viv Beck, Heart of the City's Chief Executive, says, “This year's ArtWeek in the City programme is testament to creative talent as diverse as the city itself. It’s a great reason to visit the city centre and will bring some wonderful energy and vitality here. Late Night Art is always popular, and this year’s schedule is lining up to be unmissable.

Over 20 free guided art walks, including the Unlocked Collections series, which will showcase the private collections of the Park Hyatt Auckland, Russell McVeagh, Auckland Council and the University of Auckland Business School and Science Centres.

Good News For You at The Strand Arcade (until Christmas Eve). Five artists presenting new works in temporary pop-up galleries - Anna Hanson, Oscar Low, Nicholas J Boyd, Ed Bats, and Margarita Vovna.

Late Night Art, 12 October, features over 30 exhibitions, installations, performances, workshops, and activations across the city centre.

Capture: Aotearoa's first live Digital Dance Showcase will feature dance artists projected digitally in Aotea Square, presented by Tempo Te Rerenga o Tere in partnership with Auckland Live. 

Galleries will be open late, including Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, Gow Langsford Gallery, Kura Gallery, The Tuesday Club, and more.

ArtWeek in the City Centre is brought to the city centre by Heart of the City, with the extensive programming made possible by a range of city centre stakeholders.
