ARTAND Foundation has donated 27 works of Australian contemporary art to the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, to be on display in 2017. 

The gift comprises works from Art & Australia’s Emerging Artist Award, 2003-2014 and parallels the release of a new book for us as a not-for-profit ‘Artist’s Choice’ an anthology of essays published by Art & Australia magazine between 1967 and 2014 where artists wrote about their favourite works from public collections.
