New Albion Gallery finds a home at Sherman

Facade of Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, Paddington

A new commercial gallery backed by Deutscher and Hackett is set to open in Sydney next month.  Located in  Deutscher and Hackett’s exhibition space on Oxford Street, New Albion Gallery is run by Associate Director Adam Sims (previously Gallery Manager at Kaliman Gallery) with former QAG Director and this year’s Australian Commissioner for Venice Doug Hall acting as consulting curator.

But as of next year, New Albion’s on the move, taking over the Sherman Contemporaray Art Foundation’s current gallery space in Paddington.  SCAF are relocating to the new purpose-built Sherman Family Gallery housed in the College of Fine Arts.  With over 10,000 square feet of exhibition space, this 5 year joint initiative between SCAF and COFA is expected to become Sydney’s third major public gallery after the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the MCA.
