ART GALLERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES
The Art Gallery of New South Wales is one of Australia’ flagship art museums and is a popular tourist spot for the ultimate art and cultural experience. It is conveniently located 15 minutes away from the Sydney city centre at the Sydney Domain, overlooking the Sydney Harbour. The Gallery was first established in 1871 and recently celebrated their 150th anniversary in 2021. It went under significant refurbishments through the Sydney Modern Project in 2022 and the space ultimately doubled in size to allow for more art to be displayed for people. The gallery features the original historic building, an all new building as well as a public art garden filled with work from Australian and overseas artists for everyone to enjoy. Admission into the gallery is free apart from selected exhibitions such as the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2023.
ABOUT ART GALLERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES
The Art Gallery of New South Wales holds a diverse collection ranging from Australian artworks from the colonial and 19th century, European, Asian and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art. They aim to tell stories of human encounters, cultural exchange and offer insights into individuals' creative minds.
