RM is an artist-run space, project office and archive based in Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau, New Zealand. Established in 1997, RM is the country’s longest running artist-run-space.
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.
They also support writing through their exhibition programme and Archive Residency. Wishing to enable conversations and further critical discourse of emerging artistic practices, RM provides opportunities for experimental responses for writers.
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.
