CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

In the exhibition, Speak the Wind, Iranian, Australian artist, Hoda Afshar proffers an enigmatic view of the rituals and lives that play out within the astounding landscape of these islands. In Old ways, new ways, works from three collections sit together to consider the ways that First Nations photography makes links between times gone by and the present, placing traditions within contemporary practice, speaking (sometimes shouting, at times singing, sometimes performing) across generations and through passages of time. And, TOPshots, MGA's annual celebration of emerging photomedia artists.

 

OFF-SITE EXHIBITION

The exhibition, Massimo Vitali: Leporello 2020, is a collaboration between the Italian Institute of Culture and Monash Gallery of Art and is presented in a gallery space in Southbank during PHOTO 2022 International Festival of Photography.
