An expansion of the Art Gallery of NSW.
The expansion of the Art Gallery of NSW – the Sydney Modern Project – 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.
Infrastructure NSW is delivering the project on behalf of the Art Gallery of NSW and Create Infrastructure.
Under the Infrastructure NSW 2011 Act, Infrastructure NSW may carry out a major infrastructure project on behalf of the NSW Government, if authorised to do by a Project Authorisation Order.
On 13 September 2018, the Premier of NSW signed a Project Authorisation Order, declaring Infrastructure NSW responsible for the procurement and delivery of the Sydney Modern Project.
Where are we in the process?
On 2 October 2018, Infrastructure NSW shortlisted three firms to deliver the Sydney Modern Project and issued a Request for Tender as part of the competitive tender process. For more information, visit the NSW Government eTender website.
