At the new ground-level entrance there is a dedicated gallery for The Aboriginal Memorial 1988, one of the most important works of art in the national collection. Appropriately, this sculptural installation is the first work of art visitors will see as they enter the Gallery.
Above the new function space, Gandel Hall, are 11 new galleries dedicated to the display of Indigenous Australian art which connects with the existing galleries on the main level. Each of these galleries is designed to display specific types of Indigenous art, with areas for small, early dot paintings, large galleries for larger dot paintings, spaces for bark paintings, and for watercolours, textiles, prints, ceramics and sculptures.
The new galleries cover key art regions in Australia, including the Torres Strait Islands, from remote, regional and urban areas, and will display over 600 works. The National Gallery 's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art collection comprises over 7,500 works of art. They reflect the richness and diversity of artistic practice across the country.
