Artworks Management Policy

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.
