Artworks in focus

Discover, explore and be inspired by some of the artworks in our collection.

In this selection from the Art Gallery of New South Wales collection, you’ll find a range of art forms and works by Australian and international artists.

Each artwork is accompanied by curatorial information and curriculum-linked prompts for making and responding.

Our aim is to support teachers and students with new ideas and easily adaptable material for use across all learning levels, with regular additions to this list of works.

Artwork commissions

From artworks that share Indigenous knowledge to fantastical bronze figures of a super-human scale, the Art Gallery commissioned leading artists to create major new works for the Sydney Modern Project and our transformed art museum campus.
