We acknowledge the Gadigal of the Eora nation who are the traditional custodians of the Country on which the Art Gallery of New South Wales stands.

Using this map and your phone, journey through the Gallery on this self-guided tour to discover some of the queer stories and fascinating facts behind the art. Put together by our library and archive staff, you’ll hear stories that delve into the lives of the artists and sitters.
