    Exhibition Details



    This June, CoCA is proud to present MAKING SPACE; a new exhibition that celebrates collaborative creative practice in Aotearoa New Zealand today. Taking place in the heart of Otautahi Christchurch – where collaboration and collective working has become a part of the fabric of this post-earthquake city –  MAKING SPACE will involve six diverse artist collectives and over 30 individuals practising at the cutting-edge of the Aotearoa New Zealand art community.


    CoCA will host works, events and the members of FAFSWAG, FIKA Writers, Fresh and Fruity, Mata Aho Collective, SaVAge K’ lub, and The Social with the aim of inviting diverse communities to connect,  create art and encourage conversations.  MAKING SPACE will offer an opportunity to shift how we view art and explore its potential for social change.


    Expect installations, architectural interventions, cross-gallery collaborations, performance, temporary artist residencies, projections, exchanges and discussions.



    Open 10am – 5pm
    Tuesday to Sunday
