About the Mca Collection
For the first time, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia has an entire floor dedicated permanently to presenting work from the MCA Collection. Discover work by more than 130 Australian artists in Volume One: MCA Collection, reflecting the breadth of Australian contemporary art over the past 20 years.
Highlighting the diversity of Australian contemporary art, this selection includes work by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, film and video installations, wall paintings, ephemeral and performative art and a range of cultural voices.
Engage with the beauty and poetry of Nicholas Folland’s icy chandelier and explore diverse visions of Australian culture through moving image installations by Khaled Sabsabi, Shaun Gladwell and Richard Bell among others. Discover the breadth of contemporary painting practice, including works by Daniel Boyd, Juan Davila, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Tim Johnson Gordon Bennett and Imants Tillers, and see how colour and shape are transformed in innovative pieces by Rebecca Baumann, Gemma Smith and Robert Owen.
Extraordinary bark paintings, woven bags and baskets, video, photography, drawings and collage juxtapose the diverse practices of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, while the MCA’s new Cameron Screen Space devoted to programs of single screen video showcases a range of time-based works of art.
