With COVID-19 restrictions slowly easing across the country, the Art Gallery of NSW (AGNSW) will be one of the first of Sydney’s larger cultural institutions to reopen, marking an optimistic outlook for the city’s struggling arts industry.
From Monday June 1, visitors will be able to enjoy a number of AGNSW’s galleries and exhibitions for free including: the collection galleries, the 22nd Biennale of Sydney: NIRIN, Shadow catchers, Under the stars, and Some mysterious process, a new exhibition curated by AGNSW Director, Michael Brand.
Timed ticketing, limited visitor capacity and other hygiene measures will be put in place by AGNSW to ensure social distancing. The picturesque AGNSW café will also open but must operate in line with the state’s 10-person limit on dining capacity.
In a closing statement, Premier Gladys Berejiklian stated; “NSW is home to some of Australia’s best art galleries and museums and I look forward to them reopening to the public.”
