Her work is often minimalist in structure yet temporal and experiential in nature, challenging the traditional concept of sculpture serving as museum monument. Gallacio was nominated for the prestigious Turner Prize in 2003, and was listed as one of 100 most influential gay and lesbian people of 2006 according to the Pink Power list. Her is part of several international public and private collection which include Tate Modern, Victoria & Albert Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Seattle Art Museum, and South Gallery, London.
