Renee Sutton, Untitled, 1958, gouache on paper, 50.5 x 38 cm, Cunningham Dax Collection

In the early 2000s the Cunningham Dax Collection expanded to include artworks made by people who have experienced trauma.  This expansion led to a number of group donations, including the Childhood Trauma Collection, the Holocaust Collection, the Tsunami Collection, the Safe Havens Asylum Seekers Collection and the Bushfire Collection.
