In-Gallery Security
Adam Art Gallery uses Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) to achieve a zero-harm environment for our staff, visitors, and the art works in our care. Monitored cameras are in use in some public areas to ensure that health and safety protocols are followed, and art works are not put at risk.

Anonymised data is collected to facilitate a rapid response to any safety issues and to assist with artwork protection protocols. We do not release CCTV footage directly to the public.

All monitoring and use of CCTV footage is carried out in accordance with the Privacy Act 2020.
