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 Art (QAGOMA). Since 2002, Tim Fairfax AC has supported the acquisition of some of the most remarkable works to have entered the Collection. Reflecting this generosity, this regional touring exhibition presents works by both renowned and emerging artists, from large-scale artworks to intimate photographic works. One of the distinguishing qualities of the Fairfax gift has been the donor’s willingness to venture into new collection-building territory, particularly with acquisitions from Africa, South America and the Pacific, is also apparent in the great diversity of works on display.

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

Exhibition is free and on display at the Gallery at HOTA from 21 July – 9 Sep.
