‘I don’t quite get it’: National Gallery’s makes its most expensive purchase ever
The National Gallery of Australia has made its biggest purchase ever in commissioning a new piece.
In an endeavour to “set a new standard” for Australian public art, the gallery has splashed $14 million for a stainless-steel sculpture by artist Lindy Lee.
The extravagant installation has cost the gallery almost double what it paid for its second most expensive piece – James Turrell’s ‘Within Without’ for $8.2 million in 2010.
