Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) presents their newest Summer exhibition, 20:20. 20:20 brings together twenty contemporary Australian artists, commissioned at the beginning of the pandemic to create work for the entire museum.
The twenty new works in 20:20 share visions of a changing world, a more just society, critiques of environmental policy, and the fight for racial justice. 20:20 witnesses our current calamity and seeks insight, kindness and hope.
The twenty resulting artist projects provide an active picture that moves from celebrating intimate moments of day to day life to the actions of artists determined to forge ahead with work whilst so much shuts down around them, and out to artists’ perspectives on the globally felt issues of economic injustice, the Black Lives Matter movement, and climate emergency.
There is discord here, and there is community. There is social engagement alongside introspection. Sadness can be witnessed and hope shared.
The vibrant museum offers guided tours, art classes and workshops, artist talks, kids art activities and school holiday programs.
Open daily, the museum is the heart of Dean street making it the perfect place to escape the weather, be inspired, meet an artist, get creative, learn something new, take a break, shop Australian designers, or enjoy a coffee, wine or meal on the gardened terrace. Entry is free.
