Monash Gallery of Art

Monash Gallery of Art's (MGA) mission is to be the Australian home of photography. They achieve this through the preservation, presentation and interpretation of Australian photography. As Australia’s only public art gallery solely dedicated to the collection and exhibition of photography, MGA holds a special place in the country’s network of art galleries and museums. The gallery attracts a broad audience – both actual and online – and is a place where people come to learn about, engage with and explore Australian photography, from historical to contemporary. Entry to the gallery is free.

Permanent Collection

MGA maintains a collection of over 2,400 nationally significant Australian photographic works. The collection aims to provide a cogent and refined account of Australian photographic practices from the perspective of an art museum. As a result of the efforts to date, MGA is the only cultural institution in the country whose collection is focussed solely on Australian photography.
