The Museum of Contemporary Art is Australia’s only museum dedicated to collecting and exhibiting the work of today’s artists. Visit the MCA to experience the work of leading Australian and international contemporary artists through a diverse program of exhibitions and events. Our Collection contains over 4000 works by Australian artists, including a significant representation of work by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. You can see an ever evolving display of works from the Collection on Level 2 of the Museum or connect online.
Our programs for Primary, Secondary students, students with specific needs, Early Learning groups, Teachers and Tertiary Groups promote creative learning through contemporary art. Through gallery explorations, studio sessions, digital excursions and resources, talks and workshops developed by our passionate team of Artist Educators, our accessible and inclusive learning experiences connect students and teachers with contemporary art and artists to encourage looking, thinking and creating in new ways.
Central to our philosophy is the intention to ‘bring your own story’ to encounters with contemporary art, while generating fresh meaning through playful learning strategies, collaboration and exchange.
In addition to booking a program with an Artist Educator, schools can also choose to visit the MCA in a self-guided capacity. You will need to register your self-guided visit. Find out more and register your group on our self-guided groups webpage.
