The Centre’s international Residences programme is integral to its mandate and we are incredibly proud to have hosted close to 100 artists, curators, and researchers, and held over 60 public programmes that are free to visitors from all walks of life.
The auction provides a wonderful portrait of our alumni and we are grateful that through their generous support we are able to give you the opportunity to acquire work by some of the most important and dynamic artistic voices of today.
