29 May 2021 to 11 July 2021

Develop is MGA’s annual showcase of work by emerging photographic artists. The photographs included in this exhibition represent a small selection from the vast pool of high-calibre work that was produced by graduates of bachelor degrees in Melbourne in 2020. With artists drawn from five universities and across many styles and genres, this is a celebration of the next generation of Australian photographers.
