The Godden Gift: works from the MGA Collection

14 December 2011 to 11 March 2012

Over the past year, MGA’s exhibitions have highlighted Australian photography of the 1970s. This exhibition celebrates the generous donation of 69 photographs to MGA by the photographer and curator Christine Godden. Ms Godden's donation reflects her close association with Australia's leading photographers of this period.

This exhibition of selected pictures from Ms Godden's gift acknowledges her act of tremendous generosity and its significance to MGA's nationally significant collection of Australian photography.

MGA Director Shaune Lakin will be presenting an introductory talk about the exhibition on THU 15 DEC at 11AM, all welcome at this free event.
