The dynamic NAS Galleries program enhances the School’s role as a leading centre for visual art education in the Asia-Pacific, with ambitious group and solo exhibitions by Australian and Art, Artists and Community international artists that foster critical appreciation of art and innovative art practice. The NAS Gallery is one of Sydney’s most well-appointed and distinctive exhibition spaces, housed in a former cell block of the historic Darlinghurst Gaol, located in the heart of the campus. The NAS Galleries offerings expanded in 2021 with the launch of a dedicated Drawing Gallery, developed with the School’s National Centre for Drawing to focus on innovations in contemporary drawing practice. Special projects are also exhibited in the Rayner Hoff Project Space. NAS Galleries exhibitions are accompanied by scholarly publications and a dynamic range of public programs that provide a rich context for the interpretation and understanding of art.
