Throughout the year we present a range of exhibitions, featuring painting, drawing, photography, illustration, multimedia, ceramics, and printmaking. You’ll find inspiration from emerging and established local, Indigenous and international artists, and we’ll always try to surprise you.

View the Exhibitions Program for July to Dec 2019.

It’s inspirational to look back at past exhibitions and remember the many astonishing installations, experiences and exhibitions the MAG&M has been privileged to host over just the past few years, and the many artists we have been able to present.
