Sidney Myer Fund Permanent Collection

This rare collection of artwork by Australians with intellectual disabilities comprises over 400 drawings, photographs and paintings from the mid 1970’s that featured in two landmark exhibitions, Minus/Plus (1975) and Tommy’s World I (1980), at the Australian National University Gallery in Canberra. This is a unique resource for research into the development of artwork by people with intellectual disabilities.

The Sidney Myer Fund acknowledged the special importance of this collection by supporting its documentation, preservation and conservation.
