Why arts partnerships make good business sense

Breakfast with Mr Michael Chaney AO, Dr Glenn D. Lowry, and Dr Stefano Carboni

Join leaders Mr Michael Chaney AO; Dr Glenn D. Lowry, Director of The Museum
of Modern Art, New York; and Dr Stefano Carboni, Director of the Art Gallery of WA
for breakfast and stimulating conversation on highly successful relationships between
business and the arts and the value to both. While the value to the arts organisations
might be more obvious, the business and social impact may surprise you. You will also
have the opportunity to see the exhibition Van Gogh, Dalí and Beyond: The World
Reimagined before it opens to the public.

Mr Michael Chaney AO is Chairman of the National Australia Bank Limited, Woodside
Petroleum Limited, Gresham Partners Holdings Limited and Chancellor of the University of
Western Australia. Mr Chaney has long been a champion of philanthropy in the arts and was
awarded an Order of Australia in 2004 for his support of a broad range of artistic, cultural
and scientic organisations in the WA community

Dr Glenn D. Lowry has been the Director of MoMA since 1995. His initiatives have included
strengthening what is undoubtedly one of the best contemporary art collections in the world,
and successfully leading a $900 million capital campaign for the renovation, expansion and
endowment of the Museum.

Dr Stefano Carboni has led the team at the Art Gallery of WA for nearly ve years. In this
time Stefano has been involved in the Gallery's largest and most ambitious fundraising eort
to date. The TomorrowFund successfully raised $25 million, to transform the State Art
Collection's holding of contemporary art.


The World Reimagined

The World Reimagined is the third exhibition in the MoMA Series and Perth is the only city to
host this extraordinary display. The paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, prints and
media works in this exhibition trace how modern artists have redened landscape, still life and
portraiture from 1889 to today: from Vincent van Gogh's roiling olive trees to Richard Long's
land art; from Paul Cézanne's iconic table top still life to Je Koons' shiny commodities; from
Frida Kahlo's condent self-portrait to Gerhard Richter's blurred likeness.
