On display is a selection of works from the Gallery’s collection of Australian art, from colonial to contemporary – one of the finest in the country.

Some of the Gallery’s most famous and popular works of art are presented alongside recent acquisitions and numerous works brought out of storage for the first time in years. Works across all media – paintings, sculpture, photography, video and prints – are included.

The Gallery’s iconic collection of 19th-century paintings can be seen in the Grand Courts, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art has a significant presence, and contemporary works link art practices across time.

You can also explore a selection of works from the collection on iPads in the Art Lounge.
