For the safety of our community, both the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art will temporarily close to the public from 12 noon 23 March 2020 until further notice.

The decision follows the Prime Minister’s announcement on 22 March of additional action to support social distancing measures, and advice for all non-essential services to close in order to minimise the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The health and wellbeing of our visitors, our staff and volunteers and the wider Gallery community is our top priority. We continue to work with the Queensland Government and coordinate with our partners in the Queensland Cultural Centre (QPAC, State Library of Queensland and Queensland Museum) to ensure the most appropriate response to COVID-19.

The Gallery would like to acknowledge the global scope of this challenge and the uncertainty faced by each of us as individuals and as a community. We thank you for your understanding and your ongoing support of the Gallery.

While we’re closed, the Gallery team is continuing to work behind the scenes to ensure we reopen in the best way possible. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gallery when the time is right. Meanwhile, we’ll update our online presence with news as it arises.



While we're closed join us online and stay inspired through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and our Blog.

The online QAGOMA Store remains operational with enhanced hygiene and handling procedures in place for the safety of our staff and customers. Every purchase supports the Gallery.


  • If you purchased a ticket to Water Up Late (Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March) or ‘Water’, and haven’t yet seen the exhibition, please visit the relevant web page for refund information.
  • If you have pre-paid for any other upcoming program, film screening or event, you will receive a refund of the full purchase price.
  • If you have booked an upcoming private event at the Gallery, our Catering & Events team will be in contact.
