Under the Art Gallery of New South Wales Act 1980, the Gallery’s Board of Trustees, known as the Trust, is made up of 11 trustees – ‘at least two of whom shall be knowledgeable and experienced in the visual arts’.
The Gallery has an executive team, headed by the director, who manage the Gallery’s activities.
The Gallery is also responsible for providing administrative support to three other entities, each with their own board: the Art Gallery of NSW Foundation, VisAsia and the Brett Whiteley Foundation.
