The Sydney Opera House will not acquire artworks on any permanent basis either through purchase or as a gift or part of a sponsorship. Rather, the Opera House will implement a program of selecting and exhibiting works on a rotating basis. The selection of works for temporary display will be made according to the following criteria:
Works of excellence;
Preference for Australian works;
Works that are more than just decorative i.e., should include works that challenge (match the expectation of the building);
Works are not on permanent display; and
Works selected to complement the exhibition space.
