Stories from our Supporters shares the enthusiasm, dedication and memorable Biennale experiences of our supporters.
In this video we meet Penelope Seidler AM, architect and collector of contemporary art. Penelope has visited every edition of the Biennale of Sydney since its inaugural exhibition in 1973. She is a long-serving Board Director and has been a supporter since the Benefaction Program was developed in 2002. She has also sponsored artist projects, assisting the Biennale to commission new works by artists such as El Anatsui, Douglas Gordon, Sheila Hicks and Lee Mingwei.
We thank Penelope Seidler for her vision and generosity!
The Biennale raise over 60 percent of our budget through philanthropy and partnerships to ensure your exhibition remains free. The participation of exceptional Australian and international contemporary artists, the commissioning of ambitious new works, and the creation of engagement and learning opportunities for thousands of people through our public program is all made possible because of this support.
