Volume One: MCA Collection
|Author:||Glenn Barkley [et al]|
Volume One: MCA Collection features over 280 works by more than 170 Australian artists drawn from a period of acquisitions which began with the constitution of the MCA in May 1989. This publication reflects the diversity of Australian contemporary art, including work by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, the consolidation of film and video practice from a marginal to central position; the emergence of diverse cultural voices; as well as ephemeral and performative practices. The book references the MCA’s exhibition and collecting history with essays, interviews and images and features the Museum’s commitment to Australian artists in a section on 27 Australian artists who have held solo exhibitions at the MCA. This publication is supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation.
