ART GALLERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES EXPANSION TO OPEN 3 DECEMBER
The Art Gallery of New South Wales’ expansion will officially open to the public in time for the summer break on 3 December 2022.
Premier Dominic Perrottet said the once in a generation project will attract the world’s biggest touring art exhibitions to Sydney, the nation’s cultural capital.
“This expansion to one of our state’s flagship public institutions will drive tourism, create jobs, and ensure New South Wales remains on everyone’s ‘must see’ list,” Mr Perrottet said.
“It will allow many artworks currently in storage to be displayed, and also provides a prominent new destination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.
“This is a major investment in art, artists and culture, and sends a strong signal of confidence for a vibrant and exciting future.”
