The Murray Art Museum Albury Collection represents a breadth of artistic perspectives and methods of artistic production. The Collection is a vital cultural resource and during this period of instability and uncertainty, it is a valuable asset to be able to share with our community and audiences.
COLLECTION presents selections of artwork across all of the museum's galleries, with a variety of conversations occurring in various parts of the museum. These include considerations of colonial impacts on this continent, First Nations artists' perspectives of frontier violence, and historical and contemporary representations of landscape. Elsewhere, pockets of artworks look at family relationships, isolation and the process of grieving, as well as moments of artistic self reflection questioning where inspiration comes from and how ideas then become material.
COLLECTION shares artistic voices from the museum's seventy three year collecting history, including artworks from the mid 1800s to those produced today. The variety of perspectives within the exhibition create an offering that asks for pause and reflection in our tumultuous contemporary moment.
