Change the landscape for MGA, Australian photography and our artists image

2020 is a year of celebration as MGA turns 30. To kick 2020 off, we have commissioned 4 leading Australian artists to grapple with some of the most current and challenging issues of our time. Peta Clancy, Lee Grant, Ponch Hawkes and David Rosetzky will explore the City of Monash by responding to key issues facing the community – a reflection of the city as a microcosm of the nation.

They will shine their own inimitable lens on their chosen topic of interest – local indigenous sites of significance, the migrant experience, homelessness, and the LGBTQI+ community.

We need your help to support our artists to make these significant new bodies of work. Your gift will support artist commissioning fees, printing and framing of works for exhibition, and the development of a dedicated microsite to provide enhanced engagement with the exhibition content.

With your help we will create an exhibition that speaks to the important role photography has in connecting us to each other as the artists explore our community. With a selection of the works entering MGA’s collection, your contribution will help grow the only public collection solely dedicated to Australian photography.

We hope you know how vital you are to MGA and championing Australian photography. We invite you to be part of our story by making a tax deductible donation.

Join with us as we change the landscape for MGA, Australian photography and our artists.
