Sydney Modern project

What's this about?

The Sydney Modern vision is to create a global art museum for a global city with new and expanded spaces for art, live performance and film along with spaces to learn, study and participate in cultural experiences.

Over the past three years, plans for the gallery’s expansion have been designed with significant input from the gallery community, project partners including the Royal Botanic Gardens, neighbours, the Indigenous community, art and community groups, and visitors to the gallery.

The design of the new building has been informed by feedback the gallery has received to date.
