2021 QAGOMA Foundation Digital Appeal

The 2021 QAGOMA Foundation Digital Appeal invites you to support a transformative digitisation project that will unlock the doors to our storerooms and make the QAGOMA Collection available online to audiences here and around the world.

QAGOMA is home to an internationally acclaimed collection of more than 19 000 artworks, but like many art museums across the globe, the Gallery can only display a fraction of its holdings at any time. This means that 90 per cent of our most important asset exists behind closed doors.

With your help, we can change that.

Our photographers are currently capturing every artwork in the Collection, including works so large that a whole gallery space has been transformed into a photographic studio to accommodate them. Visitors to the Queensland Art Gallery can go behind the scenes in Gallery 14 to see this process in action.

Unlocking QAGOMA’s Collection will revolutionise how our audiences discover and experience art. People everywhere will be able to take a closer look at the works we hold, as well as access an extraordinary range of resources, from videos and essays to interpretive educational material.

Your support will help to make the entire QAGOMA Collection accessible to art lovers anywhere, at any time.

‘WHILE EVERY MAJOR ART MUSEUM IS CONSTRAINED BY THE NUMBER OF WORKS IT CAN DISPLAY AT ANY ONE POINT IN TIME, DIGITISATION MAKES AN ENTIRE COLLECTION ACCESSIBLE TO ONLINE VISITORS AROUND THE CLOCK AND AROUND THE WORLD. IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY, THAT’S NOT JUST TRANSFORMATIVE; IT’S VITAL.’
