Amidst the loosened restrictions in NSW, the Art Gallery of New South Wales(AGNSW) is planning a reopening on June 1.
AGNSW will reopen in the Domain, and the Brett Whitely Studio in Surry Hills.
They have implemented measures to ensure the health and safety of all staff and visitors. These include limiting visitor numbers, timed ticketing, physical distancing, and recommended hygiene measures.
Free of charge, visitors can enjoy the collection galleries, 22nd Biennale of Sydney: NIRIN, and three exhibitions; Shadow Catchers, Under The Stars, and Some Mysterious Process.
The revised dates for the Archibald, Wynne, and Sulman Prizes 2020 exhibition, which had been postponed, will be announced soon. Amongst this, other programs will also be organised which can proceed in light of physical distancing measures.
The AGNSW’s Together In Art project, launched during their closure, will continue to offer daily boosts of art and imagination online.
As a state institution, AGNSW will continue to be guided by the National Cabinet and the Premier based on public health advice. They are also in contact with international galleries to find the best solution for the public world of art during COVID-19 restrictions.
