The MGA Collection

12 June 2012 to 15 July 2012

The famous curved wall of our Focus Gallery is now permanently home to works from our wonderful collection. A feature of the original gallery entrance, the 22 metre-long curved wall is an important aspect of Harry Seidler’s design for the building. Now freshly plastered and painted, our curved wall makes a beautiful surface for works from our collection.

At the moment we have on display photographs by CHERINE FAHD and INGEBORG TYSSEN. Works hung in our Focus Gallery will be changed regularly, so that we will usually have photographs from our famous collection on display for you to see.
