The Len Lye Centre offers greatly improved facilities for the display and archiving of the artist’s work. The Centre is adjacent to the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery on Queen Street and visitors are able to pass from one building to the other. The Govett-Brewster will continue its work as New Zealand’s leading contemporary art museum.
