MCA Collection Online

The MCA Collection contains over 4000 works by Australian artists that have been acquired since 1989. The Museum collects across 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. Following the reopening of the museum in 2012, when a significant proportion of gallery space was dedicated to the presentation of the collection, the Museum simultaneously embarked on a new MCA Collection Online initiative, supported by the Ian Potter Foundation.

This growing resource includes in depth analysis of artworks, images, exhibition histories and biographical details. MCA Collection Online is a work in progress; an evolving resource that will over time represent many more of the Museum’s collecting highlights.
