The Physics Room is a contemporary art space dedicated to developing and promoting contemporary art and critical discourse in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Based in central Christchurch since 1996, we assist art practitioners with resources and opportunities to achieve a higher level of professional and creative development, and encourage a greater acknowledgement, understanding and value of contemporary art among New Zealanders. Our goal is to actively seek links between the arts and other areas of cultural production and to involve art as a contributing voice in wider intellectual, social and political debate.

The Physics Room is a charitable trust governed by a Board of Trustees.


We accept proposals at any time.

Please send a CV, documentation of recent work and a project description (if relevant) to physicsroom@physicsroom.org.nz
