The Monash Gallery of Art (MGA) has announced that it will become known as the Museum of Australian Photography (MAPh) after 30 years of advocating for the arts and championing Australian photography.

The Gallery was established at a time when it collected and exhibited works including, but not limited to, paintings, sculpture and photography. Now, rebranded as MAPh, it is the first of its kind in Australia to exclusively dedicate its knowledge and expertise to the collection of Australian photography.
