More art for more people
As we mark our 150th anniversary, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is poised for an exciting new era with the completion of the Sydney Modern Project at the end of 2022.
This once in a generation project is an important transformation of our flagship public institution into a two-building art museum that will almost double the space for the display and enjoyment of art, providing more art for more people.
A new standalone building, public art garden and revitalised historic building with a grand forecourt will bring together art, architecture and landscape in spectacular new ways, with dynamic galleries, site-specific works by leading Australian and international artists, and extensive outdoor spaces for everyone to enjoy.
Pritzker Prize-winning architects SANAA have designed a new, open and accessible home for art, sensitive to our beautiful parkland setting overlooking Sydney Harbour, on Gadigal country. We’re Australia’s first art museum to be awarded the highest rating for sustainable design. The Gallery remains open during construction.
