Monash Gallery of Art - MGA is one of Australia's only public galleries dedicated to collecting Australian photography. Located in Wheelers Hill, approx. 30 mins from central Melbourne. MGA is a key cultural facility and a popular destination for art and photography enthusiasts from across Melbourne.
Boasting a nationally significant collection of Australian photography, the gallery's permanent collection comprises over 1600 works illustrating the development and evolution of the photographic medium in Australia.
The remarkable breadth of MGA's photography collection allows us to reflect on the multiple roles of photography: as a medium of communication and artistic expression, as a documenter of life, and as a medium that occupies a vital and central place in contemporary culture.
