Australian Design: ten years of the Peter Fogarty Fund
16 August 2014 - 9 March 2015

The Peter Fogarty Design Fund was established by Art Gallery of Western Australia Foundation Governor Dr Tim Jeffery to support the acquisition of works by Australian designers and craftspeople not yet represented in the Collection.

Australian Design: ten years of the Peter Fogarty Fund presents the exceptional works purchased from the Fund over the last ten years. It includes jewellery by Mari Funaki, Cinnamon Lee, Helena Bogucki, Sally Marsland, furniture by Jon Goulder, Khai Liew, Dinosaur Designs, Korban/Flaubert, Penelope Forlano, Tomek Archer and Christopher Robins, ceramics by Kirsten Coehlo and Robin Best, glass by Jasper Dowding, stationary and vessels by DANIEL.EMMA, knitted backpacks by Allysha Coghlan, As these names attest, the Peter Fogarty Design Fund has been truly transformative of the Collection, and has formed the heart of all the Gallery’s craft and design acquisitions over the last decade.
