MAMA started its visual art collection in 1974 when it took over as custodian and manager of the Albury Art Prize Collection.
Today, our collection contains over 2400 items. Photographs and works on paper are strongly represented, along with smaller collections of paintings, ceramics, bronzes, woodcarvings and sculptural pieces.
Our contemporary photography collection, which started in the 1960s and has grown to comprise over 600 works, is one of the most important of its type in Australia. It includes work by Tracey Moffatt, Max Dupain, Richard Woldendorp and Phillip Quirk. MAMA's National Photography Prize continues our acquisition of contemporary Australian works.
MAMA's vast collection is avaliable to view online.
