About the Appeal

MAMA Art Foundation's Annual Giving Appeal raises much needed funds to support the acquisition of significant artworks to the MAMA Collection. The financial support provided advances the status of the collection and enables the Museum to respond to culture and demonstrate leadership in curation.

A large share of funds raised through the Annual Giving Appeal goes directly to supporting the National Photography Prize bringing the best artistic photography in Australia to Albury. Last year the Foundation supported the 2022 National Photography Prize winner Tiyan Baker and acquired four of her photographic prints taken on Bidayǔh native lands in Sarawak.

Funds from the 2022 Annual Appeal directly contributed to a major acquisition of artwork by acclaimed Wiradjuri artist Karla Dickens, which we have been sharing with our audiences in our most recent collection exhibition, What Remains. Further new acquisitions by artist Hany Armanious, Tim Silver, Anna Kristensen and Bonita Bub will be exhibited in the upcoming New Acquisitions exhibition opening in June. These works highlight the breadth and strength of the MAMA collection and support from our dedicated and passionate philanthropic community.

None of this could be achieved without the generous support of our dedicated and passionate philanthropic community who contribute each year to inspire local artists and build a collection of significance for future generations.

We invite you to support the MAMA Art Foundation Annual Appeal, and are truly grateful for donations of any size.

Every two years the National Photography Prize offers an opportunity to consider the vital role of photography in contemporary art in Australia. The National Photography Prize brings together artists from across Australia who are developing and challenging photographic language and techniques.

The Prize provides a forum for artists working with photography to present cohesive selections of work, or works in series, offering a depth of critical reflection that recognises the complexities and nuances of the history of the photograph and its contemporary manifestation.

Generously supported by the MAMA Art Foundation, the National Photography Prize offers a $30,000 acquisitive first prize, the $5000 John and Margaret Baker Fellowship for an emerging practitioner, and further supports a number of artists through focused acquisitions.

Collection

The Murray Art Museum Albury Collection began in 1947 with the Albury Art Prize. Today, the collection contains over 2400 items. Photography and works on paper are strongly represented, along with smaller representations of painting, sculpture and digital artworks.
