Community Involvement - Art Transfield

Transfield has a tradition of arts benefaction spanning half a century. In 1961, Transfield’s Founder, Franco Belgiorno-Nettis, launched The Transfield Art Prize to promote up and coming Australian artists. He later founded the Biennale of Sydney, which Transfield supported as its Founding Partner until 2014. Additional sponsorships include Australian Chamber Orchestra, Sculpture by the Sea and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

The Transfield Art Collection is one of the major private collections of contemporary art in Australia, not necessarily in value, although it does contain pieces of significance, but more because it illustrates the journey of Franco Belgiorno-Nettis, now continued by his sons Luca and Guido.

In 2004, at the age of 89, two years before his passing, Franco Belgiorno-Nettis instigated a new initiative for the company: the roll-out of the company’s art rental program, whereby works from the collection became available for rent.
