The Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney is a centre promoting contemporary art and visual culture. The museum has a rolling programme of imaginative exhibits and displays, as well as a popular range of events, public forums, debates and education projects.

The MCA is open from 10am to 5pm daily (not Dec 25th) with free admission, although selected special exhibitions are by ticket only. There are guided tours at 11am and 2pm on weekdays and at 12pm and 1.30pm at the weekend.

Exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art

The MCA hosts a number of unique contemporary art collections which are displayed in a changing exhibition programme. Throughout the year several special galleries will be open, often including international, national and Aboriginal art works. As an example, one of the touring exhibitions featured at the MCA during 2000, was the Ramingining Collection of Aboriginal Art.

Ramingining is a small community, some 500 kilometres east of Darwin in the North of Australia. The Aboriginal peoples of Ramingining have lived there for tens of thousands of years. The exhibition contains over 200 bark paintings, wood carved sculptural and functional objects. These reflect a Ramingining 'Yolgnu' view of the natural world with works representing the different natural environments and the many creatures that inhabit them.

Visit the MCA web site for information about current exhibitions.
