Photography 500: Curate, Collect, Conserve

Art Announcement from Australia. Published by Monash Gallery of Art on Wednesday 10 June 2020.

Now, more than ever before, we need your support to make our programs a reality. COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the creative sector, with artists and arts workers some of the hardest hit. Every year MGA supports artists through our exhibitions, public and education programs, commissions and acquisitions and this is funded through philanthropic support.

Every dollar we receive from our donors directly funds our exhibitions and programming. In 2020-21 we will showcase 70 artists and contribute over $95,000 in artist fees including $35,000 for participating in exhibitions; $12,500 to participate in public programs; $30,000 in commissioning fees and $18,000 paid to artists to support the production of their work.

Together as a philanthropic community we can make a difference

Join our circle of Photography 500 donors which empower MGA to champion photography, support the practice of living photographers and enable audiences to discover photography online.

Please consider making a tax deductible gift by 30 June 2020 and directly enable MGA and our artists to not just survive in this time of crisis, but thrive into the future.
