The contemporary project space was home to an ongoing series of exhibitions of new work by living artists. This key part of our program enables artists working in Australia and internationally to create work on a significant scale, presented within the context of our contemporary collections. Since 1989 more than 100 projects have engaged audiences with the most current ideas and material developments in contemporary culture.

The contemporary project space has been closed as the whole floor is given over to our summer exhibition Pop to popism. AGNSW Contemporary Projects will now be located in other parts of the Gallery.
