MADA Gallery is the public face of Monash Art Design and Architecture (MADA) and is dedicated to exhibiting excellence and achievement. Emphasising excellence as a result of research, MADA Gallery facilitates and acts as a teaching aid for the benefit of the students and staff from the faculty. Addressing the local, national and international visual arts and design scene, through a wide range of media including tapestry, printmedia, ceramics, jewellery, photo-media, industrial design, digital media and installation, the Gallery program reflects art design and architecture of the highest standard and therefore reflects the university’s strengths in research and cultural production.

MUMA is committed to innovative, experimental and research-based contemporary art and curatorial practice.

As a key public art museum within Australia’s largest tertiary institution, MUMA links the university, the art world and the wider community.
