Remain in Light: Photography from the MCA Collections is a MCA Australia touring exhibition of over 70 artworks by Australian and international artists collected by the University of Sydney and the Museum of Contemporary Art during a period spanning more than 50 years. The exhibition provides a broad overview of photographic practice by artists, many who have been recognised as contributing significantly to critical debates in art from the late 1960s to the present day, exploring the influence of photographic theory and technique in contemporary art. Key genres are explored including documentary photography, serial photography, performance photography and the manipulation of the photographic image. Artists include Julie Rrap, Ed Ruscha, Tracey Moffatt, Ricky Maynard, Rosemary Laing and Barbara Kruger.

The exhibition will commence touring in 2014. Please contact MCA Touring:
touring@mca.com.au for further information about the exhibition
