MAMA Here, MAMA Now was a celebrations of now and of looking back at where the Museum had come from.
MAMA has grown from the roots of the established Albury Regional Art Gallery established in 1974 when Council took on the long-established Albury Art Prize Collection from the Albury Art Society.
Since 1974 the Gallery (now Museum) had been the epicentre of cultural practice, inspiring young and emerging artists to develop their talents and abilities. Many of these ‘Alburyites’ have gone on to work on national and international stages as professional artists, performers, writers, designers, circus performers, curators and musicians.
It is still unclear how the Museum's collection will change as the Museum does so MAMA Here, MAMA Now stood as a showcase of the past looking forward to the future as the Museum opened it's doors for the first time as the Murray Art Museum Albury.
