Permanent Collection

The Monash University Collection is a leading representation of contemporary Australian art from the 1960s to the present. It includes a diverse range of media from painting, sculpture and photography to video, installation and new media.The collection encompasses more than 2000 works, which chart a period of dynamic change from the medium-specific perceptual and formal experiments of late modernism to an expanded field of cultural reference inaugurated by pop, minimal, conceptual and performance art.Works are regularly lent to museums and galleries nationally and internationally, and are also on public display on all Monash University’s Victorian campuses. MUMA’s rich exhibition program also draws actively on the collection.The collection continues to represent new artistic tendencies as they develop with a sustained commitment to the support of innovation and excellence in contemporary Australian art.
