Contemporary app for iPad

Three pages from the Contemporary app

Contemporary: Art Gallery of NSW lets you explore featured artists and works from our contemporary collection – including the John Kaldor Family Collection – on an iPad. It includes some of the most important artists of our time, from Francis Alÿs to Bill Viola.

Get closer to the artwork than possible in the Gallery. Zoom into images to see fine details, discover stories of the artists and the art, go behind the scenes with videos, interviews with leading artists and audio commentary from Gallery curators, and get simple explanations of art terms, including movements such as conceptual art and minimalism.

Many works in the app formed part of the first display in our new contemporary galleries at the Art Gallery of NSW, launched in 2011. A special focus on Sol LeWitt is the latest in a series of updates.

This is the first in a suite of apps created around the Gallery’s collections.

In our contemporary galleries, you can explore the app on iPads in the UBS ArtZone.
