Northern Territory one step closer to new city gallery

Local company Sitzler will lead the construction of Northern Territory’s new $88 million art gallery, slated to open late 2024.

Australian construction company Sitzler has won the tender to build the $88 million Northern Territory Art Gallery (NTAG, previously referred to as the State Square Art Gallery), a major architectural centrepiece as part of Darwin’s Civic and State Square Masterplan.

Designed by local architecture practice, Ashford Architects with Clare Design and Hully Liveris, the three-storey gallery will be situated in Darwin’s CBD on Larrakia Country and draw extensively from the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory’s (MAGNT) collection.
