Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA)

Located in Circular Quay on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the MCA stands on a land of immense cultural and historical significance to the traditional owners of this place, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. It is Australia’s leading museum dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the work of today’s artists. The MCA celebrates the work of living artists, bringing exceptional exhibitions of international and Australian art to as many people as possible – welcoming over a million visitors each year – in the belief that art is for everyone. The MCA Collection contains over 4,000 works
by Australian artists that have been acquired since 1989. The Museum collects across all art forms with strong holdings in painting, photography, sculpture, works on paper and moving image, as well as significant representation of works by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.
