Len Lye Centre

"Great art goes 50-50 with great architecture"

Len Lye Centre

An extension of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, the eye-catching Len Lye Centre was built to display the works of Kiwi artist Len Lye.

Born in Christchurch in 1901 and largely self-educated, Lye was driven by a passion for motion, energy and the possibility of composing them as a form of art. Lye's interests took him to the South Pacific, London and then New York, where he became known as a creative film-maker and kinetic sculptor. He’s quoted as saying “Great art goes 50-50 with great architecture” and this stunning building is certainly that.

Opened in 2015, this is the first major gallery in New Zealand to be dedicated to a single artist.
