About RM

RM is an artist-run space, project office and archive.

Based in Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau, New Zealand, RM is a gallery that places the work of local emerging artists alongside more seasoned practitioners. RM seeks to engage with the practices, discourses and modes of presentation that aren’t well-supported or easily accessible in Auckland.

Though we might look like a white cube, we are more interested in the potentials of an empty room – a space to gather, to think, to talk, to make, to share…

Established in 1997, RM is the country’s longest running artist-run-space. The members of the cooperative are Huni Mancini, Deborah Rundle, Shelley Simpson, Vivienne Worn, Mark Schroder, Rebecca Steedman, Sarah Mohawk, Hannah Valentine, Ardit Hoxha and Ena Kosovac. Previous incarnations of the rm project have included rm3, rm212, rm401 and rm103.

Safe Space Alliance

RM is a member of Safe Space Alliance

A safe space is a space where the LGBTQI+ community can freely express themselves without fear. It is a space that does not tolerate violence, bullying, or hate speech towards the LGBTQI+ community.

A safe space does not guarantee 100% safety, rather, it’s a space that has your back if an incident (violence, bullying, or hate speech) were to occur.
