Artworks Management Policy

Sydney Opera House will not acquire artworks on any permanent basis either through purchase or as a gift or part of a sponsorship. Rather, Sydney 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
  • Works selected to complement the exhibition space
