Masons Screen

Masons Screen is an outdoor 24-hour public screen for artists' videos.

Supported by Wellington City Council and programmed by CIRCUIT Artist Film and Video Aotearoa New Zealand, Masons Screen presents a new artist’s work each month.

The screen is located on Masons Lane – a pedestrian walkway between The Terrace and Lambton Quay.
