The Art Gallery of New South Wales was the first state gallery in the country to establish an archive and we are one of the few Australian institutions today collecting, preserving and making available for research primary material on Australian visual art.
Our research library and archive is relocating to a new purpose-built, expanded facility within the building, which means that the collections are currently inaccessible.
We apologise for this disruption to our service but look forward to assisting you in person and remotely in our new premises, which we'll be previewing from 31 October 2022.
No reference enquiries by phone or online, and no access to the library and archive
Until 6 December 2022
In the meantime, see our research tools
