About Portrait of Monash: the ties that bind
2020 is MGA’s 30th anniversary. In celebration MGA commissioned four leading Australian artists to explore the City of Monash by responding to key issues facing the community.
Portrait of Monash: the ties that bind is a reflection of the city as a microcosm of the nation. Peta Clancy, Lee Grant, Ponch Hawkes and David Rosetzky have shone their own inimitable lenses on their chosen topic of interest: local Indigenous sites of significance, the migrant experience, homelessness, and the LGBTQIA+ community. Each artist has been working with members of the community to bring their unique stories to life. Whether through photography, film, oral history or the written word, this representation of their experiences reveals diverse perspectives on living in contemporary Australia.
