Publications about the Monash University Collection and MUMA exhibitions document a unique perspective on the recent history of contemporary art. Catalogues have been produced since the 1970s, featuring artists’ work and texts by MUMA staff, academics, guest curators, authors and artists. MUMA publications contribute to the study of contemporary visual culture in Australia and internationally, and constitute an important resource of primary reference documents.
