Objectspace has come to Ōtautahi. Visit our new satellite space at Sir Miles Warren Gallery, 65 Cambridge Terrace, from Thursday 16 March.

A programme of architecture focussed exhibitions will fill the former home, work place and gallery of architect Sir Miles Warren throughout 2023.

We'll launch in March with the Ōtautahi showing of Oceanic Architectural Routes: The photographic archive of Mike Austin, presented by Architectus. Open and free to visit Thursday through Sunday from 16 March to 30 April.

Up next is a newly commissioned show of drawings by Sir Miles Warren, curated by John Walsh.

Opening: 6pm, Wednesday 3 May
Exhibiting: 4 May – 11 June 2023

This exhibitions opening will double as the official launch celebration for this new space for Objectspace. Save these dates. We can’t wait to see you there. 

Keep an eye on our website, emails and social media channels for your invitation to visit exhibitions and attend public programming.

Objectspace's programme in the Sir Miles Warren Gallery is delivered by Gallery Manager Natalie Bascand alongside Objectspace Director Kim Paton, Deputy Director Zoe Black and Communications and Partnerships Manager Victoria McAdam. 

Introducing Natalie Bascand

Based in Ōtautahi, Natalie studied multiple disciplines from the performing arts and audio engineering to interior and set design, combining into her interest and practice in experiential design. Over the last decade Natalie has held various management positions within the creative industries, of note, developing scenographic branding installations and visual merchandising for Aēsop across the UK and Europe. On returning to Aotearoa Natalie worked as exhibition manager for Toi Moroki Centre of Contemporary Art and more recently has started a design & build studio; Picnic with her partner Rick.

The Warren Trust has generously gifted the use of the gallery space with the support of its current tenants, Te Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects Canterbury Branch and Athfield Architects. This offer enables Objectspace to scale our programme to two cities and two venues. And what a remarkable second venue to have, designed in Sir Miles' iconic style and nestled beside his renowned garden.

This would not be possible without the support of Christchurch City Council, The Warren TrustTe Kāhui Whaihanga New Zealand Institute of Architects, Athfield Architects  and Karen & Hamish Doig. Get in touch to support this new initiative.
