In February the Contemporary Benefactors were welcomed to the home of Dame Jenny Gibbs for an informal ‘in conversation’ with Senior Curator Ron Brownson.  As well as generously opening her home to us, Dame Jenny shared insights into the continuing evolution of her exceptional collection, and described how much fun she finds her ongoing involvement with contemporary art and philanthropy.

She challenged Contemporary Benefactors to look around at what is being exhibited outside the central city, and suggested we get on a bus and visit some of Auckland’s Southern and Eastern galleries.   Watch this space, because just such a trip is in the planning for our third quarter program.

Our greatest thanks go out to Dame Jenny for her extreme generosity in hosting us at her home.
