The Art Gallery of New South Wales is home to the longest running contemporary projects program in Australia and has always collected and exhibited the work of living artists. In the spirit of this tradition the gallery begins its 2014 contemporary programs with This is so contemporary by internationally acclaimed artist Tino Sehgal and a major exhibition of the groundbreaking American conceptualist artist Sol LeWitt. 

The Gallery’s grand court will then be transformed by an exuberantly coloured installation by Australian artist Nike Savvas in March. At the same time the Biennale of Sydney will take pride of place in the major exhibition galleries. As one of the participating venues, the AGNSW exhibition is inspired by the element of earth and fire and explores how passion fuels the imagination. The show includes a video installation by Wael Shawky and a site-specific performance and sound installation by Yingmei Duan. In the photography galleries is Australian Vernacular, an exhibition of work by Australian artists including Anne Zahalka, Trent Parke and Glenn Sloggett.

Further exhibitions this year include The Haunted Lotus, a collection of new textile works by artist Khadim Ali; a selection of witty images from Tony Garifalakis; a new constellation of drawings by artist Tom Nicholson and finally a suite of live video essays by the artistic duo Soda_Jerk.

In addition to our collection-based exhibitions, this year’s program of contemporary art would not have been possible without the generous support of UBS and Andrew and Cathy Cameron. Tino Sehgal is presented by Kaldor Public Art Projects in association with the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
