The town is positioning itself as a vibrant cultural center of New Zealand. The art gallery is part of this revival and the wonderful architecture is credit to the town that has been restored and rebuilt. The gallery itself is spacious and easy to navigate. While the famous Nz painter had a strong early European influence, it also brought in more local young contemporary artists. It is certainly worth a visit and you can feel the different style of this interesting and friendly town.
We stumbled upon this gem of a place while we were wandering around Christchurch. We are not an artful family so this place was not on our itinerary but I am glad we stopped here! There was a lot of exhibits, but we almost all enjoyed WHERIKO-BRILLIA NT. Most of the exhibits are free and the place is not too big so it won't take up your whole day.
It is a relatively large-scale art exhibition hall in New Zealand. The works are quite colorful and have a certain appreciation value. People who have been to and like various European and American art museums can't expect too much. The exhibits are worth the moment of moving. .
The Christchurch Art Gallery has recently reopened after undergoing big changes due to the 2011 earthquake. It's now a gorgeous, earthquake-proof building with beautiful spaces and exhibitions open to the public. There's a mix of interesting installations, local and international paintings, sculptures and more. Admission is also free.
This art gallery has a unique charm. It combines the old and the new architecture in a subtle way. If you are interested, you can take the escalator or elevator to the top of the ceiling. There are some portrait information displayed on the computer. There are 20th century British paintings, 19th century French art works, and modern New Zealand art works. It is really a very good and interesting combination. In addition, there are some large sculptures in front of the gallery.
