Opening December 3, 2022, the transformation of the Art Gallery of New South Wales – the Sydney Modern Project – will open to the public on 3 December 2022.

This once in a generation project is an important transformation of our flagship public institution into a two-building art museum that will almost double the space for the display and enjoyment of art, providing more art for more people.

A new standalone building, public art garden and revitalised historic building will bring together art, architecture and landscape in spectacular new ways, with dynamic galleries, site-specific works by leading Australian and international artists, and extensive outdoor spaces for everyone to enjoy.

Pritzker Prize-winning architects SANAA have designed a new, open and accessible home for art, sensitive to our beautiful parkland setting overlooking Sydney Harbour, on Gadigal country. We’re Australia’s first art museum to be awarded the highest rating for sustainable design.

The $344 million Sydney Modern Project is the most significant cultural development in the city since the opening of the Sydney Opera House nearly half a century ago. Together with the NSW Government’s $244 million in funding, the Art Gallery has raised more than $100 million from private donors to support this significant investment in art and culture for future generations.

The Sydney Modern Project is being delivered by Infrastructure NSW on behalf of the government and the Art Gallery and built by Richard Crookes Constructions. Architectus is executive architect. The Art Gallery remains open during this time.
