On 13 April 2018 I met with the lovely people at the Art Gallery of New South Wales to discuss the exciting upcoming Sydney Modern Project.

The Gallery’s expansion will enable the display of more of the State’s art collection and the hosting of more major exhibitions from around the world. The new building designed by international Pritzker Prize-winning architects SANAA will be linked by an outdoor art garden to the existing and much-loved historical building.

Due for completion in 2021 for the Gallery’s 150th anniversary, the expanded Gallery will provide more space for art in all its evolving forms, along with new opportunities to learn, create, discover and engage. Australia will gain a vibrant new cultural hub where people, ideas and art come together, strengthening links with our local and regional communities, and improving access between the Gallery, The Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney, Sydney Harbour, Sydney Opera House, The State Library of New South Wales, the CBD and Woolloomooloo.
