The Art Gallery of South Australia has one of the largest art museum collections in Australia, comprising almost 47,000 works of art spanning 2000 years. Our collection includes paintings, sculpture, prints and drawings, photographs and videos, textiles and clothing, ceramics, glass, metalwork, jewellery and furniture.

To date approximately 46% of collection records are available to view in the online collection. We make regular updates through research and documentation.


AGSA has commenced a major project for the development and construction of a new storage facility. As with any major museum project, AGSA is currently devoting significant resources to this project and as a consequence has placed a moratorium on outward loans. AGSA will consider and process loan requests from January 2024.

Provenance Research

The Gallery undertakes ongoing research to establish the history of ownership, or provenance, of works of art in its collection. Find out more.
