MADA’s Master of Fine Art Graduate exhibition includes both emerging and established contemporary artists who have completed their Master’s of Fine Art. This is an opportunity for industry professionals, future students, educators and the general public to see our graduating students’ work.

The Fine Art Postgraduate Symposium 2017 presents a day of papers by Monash graduate researchers working across art history and theory, curatorial and fine art practice. The papers span a broad spectrum of research and practice, but share an attention to some of the most vital and compelling aspects of contemporary life and culture.
