'New Acquisitions in Context' celebrates five years of the MCA’s successful New Acquisitions series of exhibitions. It is presented throughout the Museum’s Level 4 galleries and showcases recent acquisitions alongside selected works from the existing MCA and JW Power Collections.

Collecting is a vital part of the MCA’s activities and is crucial in terms of supporting artists and preserving their work for future generations. The MCA is the only museum in Australia dedicated to collecting and exhibiting contemporary art. New Acquisitions in Context provides
visitors with the opportunity to experience a diverse selection of Australian and international art as well as offering an insight into how the MCA Collection is developed.
