The Murray Art Museum Albury Collection represented a breadth of artistic perspectives and methods of artistic production. The Collection was a vital cultural resource and during the period of instability and uncertainty, it was a valuable asset to be able to share with our community and audiences.

COLLECTION
presented a selection of artwork across all of the museum's galleries, with a variety of conversations that occurred in various parts of the museum. These included considerations of the colonial impact on the continent, First Nations artists' perspectives of frontier violence, and historical and contemporary representations of landscape. Elsewhere, pockets of artworks looked at family relationships, isolation and the process of grieving, as well as moments of artistic self-reflection which questioned where inspiration came from and how ideas became material.

COLLECTION shared artistic voices from the museum's seventy-three year collecting history, including artworks from the mid-1800s to those produced today. The variety of perspectives within the exhibition created an offering that asked for pause and reflection in our tumultuous contemporary moment.
