‘One of the things that shaped my life was being involved with biennales’ Today we meet Dr #DickQuan, who has generously supported the Biennale since 2008. Dr Quan is a director at #HoldsworthHouseMedicalPractice and a highly respected collector of contemporary art, traveling extensively to biennales and art fairs globally. His passion and enthusiasm for artists, developing audiences and support for the arts in Australia is truly infectious. We thank Dr Dick Quan for his passion and generosity!
