Starkwhite Levels Up With New Gallery Space

New Zealand-based gallery moves onwards and upwards after 23 years.

Words: Erin Irwin

After 23 successful years on Karangahape Road, Auckland gallery Starkwhite are making a move. With a brand new, purpose-built location, the gallery space will span across three levels and multiple rooms, providing plenty of space for multiple concurrent shows and expanded curatorial ambitions.

The gallery will be presenting an exhibition of Jonny Niesche’s work to launch their Newton Road location. The show, You say sfumato, I say sfumato, is a mediation on light, colour and form – a perfect fit for the new, bright white walls.

You say sfumato, I say sfumato will be on show until Saturday 8 July at 94 Newton Road, Auckland, New Zealand.
