Description - Courage and Beauty: The James C Sourris AM Collection by

Over two decades, Brisbane collector and benefactor James C. Sourris AM has amassed an extensive collection of Australian art, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, focusing on contemporary and postwar Australian artists, with particular attention given to artists from Queensland. A major benefactor to the Queensland Art Gallery I Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), Sourris has generously gifted around 200 works to the Gallery's Collection to date and this publication will highlight his longstanding generosity and the significance of his contributions.

The book features Chris Saines CNZM, Director, QAGOMA, in conversation with James C. Sourris AM and an essay by exhibition curator, Peter McKay, Curatorial Manager, Australian Art, QAGOMA, as well as interviews with nine high-profile contemporary artists.
