Northern Territory Art Gallery

Northern Territory Art Gallery

The Northern Territory Art Gallery design respects the civic setting of the Supreme Court and Parliament House while enlivening the Civic and State Square Precinct. Integrating architecture, art and landscape. It will embrace the guardianship of priceless cultural treasures.

The new art gallery’s iconic façade mirrors the dusky ochre hues of the porcellanite rock cliffs that encircle the Darwin peninsular. It will become a cultural beacon inside a central gathering place to connect Darwin locals with their civic and cultural institutions.

The three-storey art gallery, with its high quality and contemporary design, will not only exhibit the Northern Territory’s significant art collections but will also display world-class Australian and international travelling exhibitions.

The art gallery’s design features tropical architectural elements such as colonnade screening and a fly roof, which provide shade and weather protection, and features four large art galleries with high ceilings, a spacious foyer and space for workshops, a shop and café.

The new art gallery is being delivered in collaboration with the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, which will develop the exhibitions and programs and operate the gallery on behalf of the Northern Territory Government after it opens.
