Malcolm Smith Gallery is a public art gallery in East Auckland that presents a programme of curated exhibitions of work by local, national and international artists. The gallery believes in the power of art to inspire and challenge and transform people, so it aims to make contemporary art relevant and accessible to people from all walks of life. It presents artwork in ways that encourage dialogue, foster creativity and generate meaningful new ideas.
In 2023, Malcolm Smith Gallery presented the results of a multimedia arts project called Beberemos El Vino Nuevo, Juntos! | Let Us Drink the New Wine, Together! This project was developed by Zealand artist and researcher alys longley and her Chilean co-creator Máximo Corvalán-Pincheira. It produced an archive of miniature works of art created during the COVID-19 pandemic by artists from around the world. It was also shown at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Santiago as part of a large group show to celebrate the museum’s 50th anniversary.

It is an independent, non-profit organisation that receives some funding from Auckland Council.
