Museum of Contemporary Art Australia

back Back to Feasts

The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) is Australia’s leading museum dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the work of today’s artists.

The MCA celebrates the work of living artists, bringing exceptional exhibitions of international and Australian art to as many people as possible in the belief that art is for everyone.

Its vision is to make contemporary art and ideas widely accessible to a range of audiences through the presentation of a diverse program of exhibitions and special events, both onsite and offsite.

From major thematic exhibitions and solo surveys of established artists, to new work by emerging artists, touring exhibitions and community-led projects through C3West, it strives to cover the range and diversity of contemporary art. 

Admission to galleries, cafe and temporary exhibitions is free (admission fees apply to the major summer exhibition, Do Ho Suh, for the Sydney International Art Series).


The MCA is a registered COVID-Safe business. The health and wellbeing of visitors to the museum is our highest priority and we need your help to contain the spread of COVID-19.
