Established by Moët & Chandon in 1987, the Foundation comprises three elements, the Fellowship, the Touring Exhibition and the Art Acquisition Fund which have provided developing young artists in Australia with an innovative programme of support of real significance. Moët & Chandon’s long term commitment to the future of the visual arts in Australia is unique and visionary in its scope and generosity.
[…] The annual Moët & Chandon Touring Exhibition is the second element of the Foundation. The work of the winning Fellow and the other finalists is exhibited throughout Australia at the major galleries giving the artists the associated exposure and recognition that a tour of this status provides.
