Support Australian artists by investing in the development and production of ambitious new commissions.

UNSW Galleries Menu

Supporting Australian artists is at the core of all our activities. By giving to the UNSW Galleries Fund, you play an essential role in creating opportunities for mid-career practitioners to develop and present ambitious new works.

Over the past few years, our supporters have helped us realise ambitious commissions by Archie Moore, Elizabeth Pulie, Gordon Hookey, Renee So and Kahdim Ali, with several acquired by leading museum collections.

No matter how big or small, your generosity makes a difference. 100% of your gift goes directly to practitioners to support the development and presentation of new works. Donations over $2 are tax-deductible.
