The Art Gallery of New South Wales acknowledges the traditional custodians of the country on which it is located, the Gadigal of the Eora nation, and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.
From its magnificent site in Sydney, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is one of Australia’s flagship art museums and the state’s leading visual arts institution. Our mission is to serve the widest possible audience as a centre of excellence for the collection, preservation, documentation, interpretation and display of Australian and international art, and a forum of scholarship, art education and the exchange of ideas.
On December 3, 2022, the North Building was unveiled, part of a transformation that creates a new art museum experience across two buildings connected by a public art garden in one of the world’s most beautiful cultural precincts. The Art Gallery’s new building – designed by Pritzker Prize–winning architects SANAA – brings together art, architecture and landscape in spectacular new ways with dynamic galleries and seamless connections between indoor and outdoor spaces.
There are also two additional dining options in the North Building – MOD. Dining by Clayton Wells, an all-day relaxed experience offering creative, edgy and diverse dishes using Australia’s best produce and an all-Australian wine list; and Kiosk, a casual takeaway option situated in the new building’s outdoor Welcome Plaza with a menu developed by Gamilaroi elder Aunty Beryl Van-Oploo that will highlight Indigenous Australian ingredients with light snacks and sweet treats. These are available in addition to the restaurant Crafted by Matt Moran and The Gallery Cafe in the Art Gallery’s existing building.
We’ve created two after-hours experiences like no other, inviting guests to indulge in their love of art, creativity, culture and food at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Discover A Night at the Gallery and The Yiribana Experience. If you’re looking for something extraordinary to do during the day you must try Become the Artist.
It will be a prominent destination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture.
