PostSubject: Eurovisions: Contemporary Art from the Goldberg Collection - otherwise known as junk   Sun Jun 18, 2017 12:25 am

This year's Financial Review Rich List reveals that Australia today has no fewer than 60 billionaires. For an economy in perpetual crisis, demanding sacrifices from the lowest wage earners, things are obviously working well for some people.



Looking at this list it's remarkable how few of our billionaires do anything at all for the arts. There are notable exceptions, but the vast majority of mega-rich Australians apparently couldn't care less if there were no such things as art galleries, theatres and concert halls.

Philanthropists who have made the greatest contributions, such as the late James Fairfax, have never been anywhere near the summit of the Rich List. Search the top 200 and you will find no trace of David Walsh, whose Museum of Old and New Art has revolutionised tourism in Tasmania. Neither will you find Danny Goldberg, an investor who was the only Australian to feature in Artnews' most recent annual list of the world's top 200 collectors of contemporary art.
