Auckland Mayor Wayne Brown has recently criticised Toi O Tamaki Auckland Art Gallery, calling it one of the most uneconomic buildings in the city. 

He also compared the institution's visitor numbers to that of a dairy, saying it wouldn’t be sustainable in the latter circumstances. 

That being said, Toi O Tāmaki focuses on various projects and systems beyond garnering sales and visitors for their exhibitions. 

To learn more, Liam spoke to Te Arepa Morehu, the galleries head of Kaupapa Māori, about the purpose of the gallery beyond visitor numbers.
