Kia Ora, Welcome
The National is a dealer gallery in Christchurch, Aotearoa New Zealand, owned by Director Caroline Billing. The gallery specialises in contemporary jewellery from New Zealand and solo exhibitions by a select group of international jewellery artists. Since the gallery’s relocation and expansion in 2018, the annual exhibition programme now includes sculpture and object-based works across other media.
Billing is committed to showcasing both established and emerging artists, with a particular focus on solo exhibitions of new work. Since opening in 2004, The National has played a vital role in nurturing the development of contemporary jewellery in New Zealand, creating links to international practice and offering opportunities for experimentation and critical development in the field. The expansion of the gallery’s space and increasing reputation has seen the addition of ambitious collaborative projects and curated group exhibitions to the programme.
