A celebration of life: Edmund Capon AM, OBE

All welcome to attend

A celebration of life will be held as a tribute to Edmund George Capon AM, OBE (11 June 1940 – 13 March 2019), who was director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales from 1978 to 2011.

Edmund made an indelible impact on the cultural life of Australia. His legacy is an enduring one.

This event will recognise Edmund’s dedicated service to the Gallery, which he transformed during his tenure into one of the country’s most significant and most loved cultural institutions.

Edmund was a tireless and enthusiastic advocate for art and artists, and will be deeply missed by many members of the Australian and international arts community.

Further details of the event will be available closer to the date.
