Update from the Gallery regarding COVID-19

The Art Gallery of New South Wales is open. We are observing strict physical distancing and hygiene measures to protect the health of visitors and staff and minimise the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Read the latest visit information

The contemporary project space was home to an ongoing series of exhibitions of new work by living artists.

This key part of our program enables artists working in Australia and internationally to create work on a significant scale, presented within the context of our contemporary collections. Since 1989 more than 100 projects have engaged audiences with the most current ideas and material developments in contemporary culture.

AGNSW Contemporary Projects are now located in other parts of the Gallery.
