100 Works of the Monash University Collection

Between 2016 and 2019, MUMA commissioned short-form texts by art historians, curators and artists on 100 artworks held in the Monash University Collection. The aim was to open the Collection up to a broad range of voices and perspectives—from those who have had close contact with it over five decades, to those new to it. Invited writers examine artworks in detail, offering a close analysis of the specific materials, techniques and installation devices used, and elaborating on their historical and art-historical contexts. As such, the texts reflect the material, conceptual, cultural and temporal diversity and scope of the Collection itself.

The texts are intended to enrich daily interactions with Collection artworks and extend learning, appreciation and knowledge for both local and broader audiences. The project continues MUMA’s ongoing commitment to commissioning, collecting and researching contemporary Australian art, and builds upon earlier collection publications, such as Change (2010) and Monash University Collection: Four Decades of Collecting (2002).
