The capital campaign

Help us create a vibrant new cultural hub for the arts

Our vision for the Gallery’s future is bold, and this project can only reach its full potential through philanthropic support.

The Sydney Modern Project is the largest public-private partnerships in the arts in Australia. Along with the NSW Government’s funding for construction, the Gallery’s Capital Campaign is close to reaching its target of raising $100 million to support the new building.

The Campaign is being led by a dedicated committee under the chairmanship of Gallery Trustee Dr Mark Nelson.

We invite you to consider joining the Gallery’s community of donors to help bring this once-in-a-generation project to life, delivering enormous cultural and economic benefits for generations to come. The campaign welcomes gifts of any size.

Construction of the Gallery’s new building, designed by world-renowned architects SANAA, is expected to commence in early 2019 for completion in 2021, our 150th year.

As a donor, you will have an insider’s view from the beginning of the Gallery’s expansion, through special communications and events such as behind-the-scenes tours, programs and other engagement opportunities.

A 150th-anniversary acquisitions campaign will be launched to strengthen our collection in time for the opening of the expanded Gallery. There are also opportunities to support endowments, programs and other activities.

Together we will celebrate the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ proud history and build for the future, transforming the arts and cultural landscape in Australia.
