Venice Biennale Supporters

Australia at the Venice Biennale would not be possible without the support from our Champions, the Commissioners Council and our Partners.


Private individuals, known as our Champions, are important stakeholders. As well as contributing financially to the project, Champions share a common interest in contemporary visual arts, and are our ambassadors and advocates. Champions participate in a range of events in Australia and in Venice, greatly strengthening the success of Australia at each Biennale.
