Contemporary galleries

Location: Contemporary galleries, Contemporary project space

Free admission

The contemporary galleries feature a changing selection of international and Australian art. They are also home to temporary exhibitions of contemporary projects by living artists.

With the gift of the John Kaldor Family Collection, the Art Gallery of NSW has the most comprehensive representation of contemporary art in the country from the 1960s to the present day.

The space has currently been be given over to our major summer exhibition Pop to popism. It will reopen with a new display from the Kaldor Collection as well as an exhibition of works exploring the complex relationship between protest and art, and another titled Colourwheel celebrating the playful and dynamic ways in which modern artists have used colour.

AGNSW contemporary galleries are supported by the Belgiorno-Nettis family.
