Play a vital role today in creating a 21st-century art museum by joining the Gallery’s next generation of benefactors

The Sydney Modern Project will transform and expand the Art Gallery of NSW into an inspiring 21st-century art museum for a new generation of visitors. Atelier supports this vision alongside our Atelier patrons Tony Albert, Agatha Gothe-Snape and Ben Quilty.

Atelier is the Gallery’s newest Foundation supporter group, attracting a vibrant network of Sydney lovers of art and culture. Atelier supports the Sydney Modern vision by contributing to the commissioning and acquisition of new artwork for the Gallery as well as enabling important community and outreach projects.

Atelier is a fantastic way to become a part of the vibrant Gallery community, meet inspired and like-minded individuals and play a vital role in the future of the Gallery – the Sydney Modern Project is scheduled for completion in 2021 to celebrate the Gallery’s 150th anniversary. With five exclusive events each year, Atelier also provides a unique opportunity to further your understanding and enjoyment of art.
