MGA will be closing our galleries from 9 July 2020 until further notice in line with the Victorian Government's return to COVID-19 Stage 3 restrictions.
We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of our community and we recognise the importance of arts and culture to society. In a time where social distancing is the new normal, we know how vital it is to keep connected to each other.
Our team will continue to work remotely so please continue to reach out to us via email.
We wish you and your family good health and that we come together to support each other in these challenging times.

As a result of our efforts to date, MGA is the only cultural institution in the country whose collection is focussed solely on Australian photography.
