New look National Gallery of Australia

Article content

1 October 2010

The redesign is the biggest transformation of the National Gallery of Australia since its creation in 1982 and work is on track for completion in time for spring this year.

Visitors to the Gallery in Canberra will walk though a striking new entrance and be greeted by 11 specially designed Indigenous art galleries, showcasing works from the largest collection of Australian Indigenous art in the world.

The new galleries include rare 19th century objects and early bark paintings, Albert Namatjira’s delicate watercolours, early Papunya dot paintings from the 1970s, bold ochred paintings from the Kimberley and contemporary politically charged works by urban artists in the 21st century.

The new look National Gallery of Australia also includes a new, expanded Shop, showcasing beautifully designed products and creative gift items: contemporary Australian design, dedicated high-quality children’s books, Asian textiles, a great selection of specialist art and design publications and more.
