In 2009, the collaboration continues with Rising Tide: Film & Video Works from the MCA Collection. This exhibition showcases film and video works by contemporary Australian artists, which have been acquired over the past six years. It reveals some of the many thematic and conceptual approaches taken to screen- and projection-based media today through the work of both younger and well established Australian practitioners. Participating artists include Destiny Deacon, Shaun Gladwell,The Kingpins, Jess MacNeil, Todd McMillan, TV Moore, Kate Murphy, David Noonan, Susan Norrie, Patricia Piccinini, Tony Schwensen and Daniel von Sturmer.

This exhibition opens at the MCA San Diego in February 2009, before being presented at the MCA Sydney as part of its winter season.
