The Artists' Committee has requested that the NGV respond to the open letter by Wednesday 16th August. Additionally, we have asked the NGV to answer the following questions.  


Who approved the decision and was there any sort of review process?

Were those who made the decision to do business with Wilson aware of its human rights record?

Does the gallery have any ethical standards that they expect their contractors and suppliers to meet?

Why wasn’t the tender made public and why, as we understand is the case, were security guards at the gallery were explicitly instructed not to disclose the name of their employer?
