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.
