In keeping with the Art Museum's foundational aims, the development of the Collection and the exhibition program has been led largely by the desire to unpack 'the contemporary' "“ works of art that interrogate, critique and record the present moment. beyond the Tower provides us with the opportunity to look back over the changes and challenges of the past and, with that as context, to set the compass for the decade ahead.
