The majority of the Government Art Collection is displayed in Government buildings around the world, or placed on public view.

The GAC welcomes requests for loans to public exhibitions and responds positively whenever possible. Displays on the GAC premises are accessible to the public on tours of the Collection and special events such as London Open House. In addition to themed displays, visitors to the Collection are also able to see a range of other work that may be on the premises at the time of their visit.
