About HOTA Gallery
In May 2021, HOTA will open the City’s new $60.5M Gallery. HOTA Gallery is the centrepiece of the City’s Cultural Precinct Masterplan which guides the evolution of the precinct over the next 10-15 years as the city’s artistic and cultural needs grow. With more than $399 million allocated to deliver the precinct, this is a City serious about supporting the arts.
William Robinson’s stunning painting The Rainforest (a key work in the City’s collection) has been the inspiration for both the architectural design and future gallery programming: a trailblazer full of wonder, and creation; an unfolding experience of viewpoints and discoveries that challenge us to dig deeper and get lost in creative ideas.
Designed by international architects ARM and spanning six levels with over 2000m2 of museum standard exhibition space, the new Gallery will have the capacity for touring exhibitions of an international size and scale alongside exhibition spaces for the City Collection and smaller temporary exhibitions, a dedicated Children’s Gallery and almost 1000m2 for collection storage and exhibition preparation.
HOTA Gallery will become a must-see destination that facilitates and shares new ideas and experiences in visual art both indoors and outdoors; that draws its strength from integrated arts programming, and collaborations with artists, creatives and institutional partners on a local to global scale.
