26 February 2013 | Tony Bond, head curator of international art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales for the last 29 years, is retiring next month.

Bond built up a significant collection of contemporary art during his time at the gallery. He recently commented to the
Sydney Morning Herald that "exhibitions come and go but it's the collection that matters because that's concrete evidence for a period of time."

Bond's retirement comes during a key transitional period for the gallery. In recent months the AGNSW has said farewell to Hetti Perkins; senior curator of Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander Art for 13 years, and Edmund Capon; director of the gallery for 33 years.
