Thank you to Transfield Holdings for 17 years of sponsorship. Since 2003, Transfield has sponsored many aspects of the exhibition including kinetic artists and install machinery costs for the artists, benefiting almost every artist in the exhibition. In previous years, artists had to meet these costs themselves.
