New Acquisitions


The Collection is continuously evolving, through purchases, donations and bequests. Our aim is to build on areas of strength and overcome areas of weakness, so that existing works in the Collection can be displayed and understood in broader and richer contexts.

As the Gallery’s Director, Stefano Carboni, says, “The Gallery’s thoughtful and focussed aspiration to build and maintain the finest public art collection in this State for today’s and future generations is of the utmost importance. Every year we add works to the existing collection that highlight current practices and expand our historical holdings. I hope you find inspiration in these works of excellence.”
