Explore art, everywhere

The Gallery has now digitised more than 3000 artworks and built the framework for our new Collection Online platform. The site is evolving daily – take a look around for a taste of what’s in store.

At this crucial stage in the project, we need your support to revolutionise how our audiences discover and experience art. You can help ensure our new Collection Online is a place where artworks are brought to life with stories about artists, their communities and practices.

With your support, we can create interactive digital archives for major exhibitions and projects, including the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art – the exhibition series that has made QAGOMA the leading institution for the contemporary art from this region – and collaborate with artists and digital designers to create immersive 3D experiences, like this one developed for Judy Watson’s iconic sculpture tow row 2016 at GOMA’s entrance.

Together, we can give people everywhere a closer look at the works we hold, alongside inspiring and thought-provoking digital resources.

While every major art museum is constrained in the number of works it can display at any point in time, digitisation can make an entire collection accessible to the online visitor, around the clock and around the world.
