Partnerships

Supporting the contemporary arts

As the first Australian corporate sponsor for the Venice Biennale, Maddocks has supported Australian artists exhibiting at the world’s premier contemporary art event since 2001.

We are once again sponsoring the Australian representation to the Venice Biennale 2017. More information on the Australian representation is available at the Australia Council for the Arts website.

Maddocks established the Maddocks Art Prize which enables two emerging Australian artists to attend the Venice Biennale. The prize provides accommodation and a stipend for a week in Venice.

The winners of the 2017 Maddocks Art Prize were James Nguyen and Noriko Nakamura.

We are proud to be the official Legal Partner for the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, a national organisation dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the work of today’s artists.

Maddocks also proudly provides legal advice to many arts organisations – the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) and the Victorian College of the Arts are just three.

Indigenous Marathon Project

More recently, Maddocks together with the Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP), have formalised a two year alliance, with the firm providing pro-bono legal, marketing and library services to the IMP team.
