MCA, Tate and Qantas Support Australian Art

In celebration of International Museum Day on May 18, dedicated to contested histories, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA), Qantas Airways and Tate have announced the attainment of five additional artworks in their International Joint Acquisition Programme for contemporary Australian art.

Aiming to promote Australian art globally and help young Australian artists to reach new audiences, the groundbreaking collaboration, launched in 2015, was the result of a corporate gift from Qantas Foundation.

The joint acquisitions include three paintings by Helen Johnson, an installation by Richard Bell and a video by Peter Kennedy with John Hughes.
