The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) is dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the work of today’s artists. Connecting a broad and diverse public with the work of these artists, the MCA pursues curatorial excellence and innovation in audience engagement.
Our vision is to engage audiences with contemporary art and ideas through the presentation of a diverse program of exhibitions and special events onsite and offsite. From major thematic exhibitions and surveys of established artists, solo exhibitions and artist projects, to new work by emerging artists, touring exhibitions and community led projects through C3West, we strive to cover the range and diversity of contemporary art.
The MCA Collection contains over 4,000 works by Australian artists that have been acquired since 1989. The collection spans all art forms with strong holdings in painting, photography, sculpture, works on paper and moving image, as well as significant representation of works by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.
We offer a vibrant public program which includes practical and theoretical programs for schools, creative programs for children and families, social and cultural events for young people, and major public lectures themed around MCA exhibitions and contemporary issues in the visual arts, design, architecture or film.
