Supporters of Contemporary Art

NGV Contemporary is a vibrant group made up of people who have a passionate interest in contemporary art and want to gain a greater understanding.

Through the year NGV Contemporary draws together collectors, curators, writers and scholars. We meet artists, view private collections and hear art professionals discuss and debate the most recent innovations in national and international contemporary art. NGV Contemporary offers the opportunity to become more closely involved with the dynamic and diverse fields of contemplator art practice and visual culture.

NGV Contemporary was formed in 2001 and is committed to promoting and cultivating a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art.

NGV Contemporary works to attract annual cash donations and secure gifts of major works of art for the NGV’s Contemporary Art collection.
