Social media platforms

Twitter is a feed of short messages sent to your mobile phone or posted on the Twitter website. It's particularly good for receiving reminders on the go, so sign up and set up your mobile and don't miss out on free lunchtime talks, evenings and all those things you intend to go to but somehow slip your mind.

facebook is another great way to stay updated on event details and exhibition dates but there's more—receive wall posts about interesting artists, international art world news and events—interesting stuff that takes our fancy and we hope you'll enjoy too.

Instagram is photo sharing website where the NGA will share a fun variety of images from around the Gallery capturing behind the scenes moments, our staff and Gallery events.

Flickr is our other photo sharing website. We like to use it to share our photos of events and artists when they visit the NGA to provide talks and inspiration.

You Tube is where we are adding video content all the time. Keep visiting to see more videos of artist talks, video projects and more.

Google+ is your way to stay in touch. Join us for event details and exhibition dates, posts about interesting artists, international art world news and events.
