The Art Gallery of NSW
The NSW Gallery will increase the number of art exhibitions it has hosted. Additionally, the popularity of the NSW Gallery will increase. This is because the exhibition is likely to attract viewers who have never visited it. Further, the NSW Gallery is likely to increase its revenues from the sale of existing collections to art lovers who will attend the exhibition
Local community (Sydney and Australian population).
The local community will have an opportunity to view David Hockney’s works, which they may not otherwise access in the absence of such an exhibition. Moreover, the exhibition will inspire infrastructural improvements. These will enhance the accessibility of essential services such as transport, sanitation and electricity for the local community. In addition, the exhibition will attract foreign visitors. This will promote the image of Sydney and Australia as an attractive tourist destination.
The event director will receive local and international recognition for overseeing the organization of the exhibition successfully. Moreover, the event director is likely to receive proposals to oversee the management of similar events within and outside Australia, in the future. In addition, the event director will receive attractive compensation for excellent event management.
Sponsors will get an opportunity to promote art and artistic talent. They will also enhance their image by associating with a successful exhibition. For instance, companies will attract positive publicity for sponsoring the event. In addition, sponsors could use the exhibition to identify investment opportunities in Australia.
Local Government of Sydney and National Government of Australia
Through the exhibition, the local and national governments will boost the image of Sydney and Australia worldwide as supportive of art and attractive tourist destinations. Additionally, the local and national governments will enhance their image in the public eye by performing infrastructural improvements. The exhibition will also give them an opportunity to meet sponsors who can provide financial assistance to support the growth of art and the economy in Australia.
