Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander

– Where

For Aboriginal cultures, visual arts are central to identity, place and belonging. They are an expression of a unique and continuing tradition and have an important place in the continuing survival of Aboriginal cultures. Within the Museum’s program the MCA strongly supports and promotes the work of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) artists through exhibitions, education and events which attract a broad public and encourage new audiences to understand and enjoy contemporary art in all its forms.

The Museum’s collections of works by ATSI artists are a valued resource and core function of the Museum’s activities. The MCA holds a great many important works by ATSI artists, including significant works from Arnhem Land. The MCA is committed to developing its policies and programs in relation to ATSI artists and communities. These include professional development initiatives, increasing engagement of contemporary art through special MCA public programs and our Djurali Youth Art Careers Workshops.
