A World View: The Tim Fairfax Gift

-

 

A World View: The Tim Fairfax Gift is the story of a deep commitment to contemporary art and to the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern (QAGOMA). Since 2002, Tim Fairfax AC, has supported the acquisition of some of the most remarkable works including monumentally scaled installations and photographic works. Reflecting this generosity, the regional touring exhibition presents works by renowned and emerging artists.

The human body and human experience of the world is at the centre of all of these works, which have been drawn from across the globe. Together, they allow us to develop a richer perspective on our place in the world, and to participate more fully in the process of shaping what it might become.

A World View: The Tim Fairfax Gift is a touring exhibition developed by the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art.
