After an extensive redevelopment, MAMA is one of the largest and best equipped exhibition spaces in regional Australia. It features seven flexible exhibition spaces with compartmentalised climate control systems, an education workshop, permanent collection storage, an accessible loading dock, a restaurant and a shop. MAMA also provides four hot desks for creative industry professionals to intermingle with the MAMA team.


MAMA reimagines what a gallery can be. More than a showcase for art, MAMA is an all-encompassing contemporary art experience that balances international touring exhibitions with deep connections to the community. Every corner of MAMA is bold, vibrant and alive. Along with an emphasis on innovative, self-curated exhibitions, MAMA features a stunning 24-hour 'art skin', interactive workshops and immersive cultural experiences.


As part of PGAV’s Gallery Insights program, MAMA's Jenn Wright and Jules Boag provided a tour of the building and the current exhibition SPEED: The Fast and the Furious.   This was followed by a tour of Arts Space Wodonga with Team Leader Karina Lamb. Karina discussed Arts Space Wodonga’s unique approach to making the most of a one-room gallery and also provided an overview of the current exhibition Our Stories: Our Voices – featuring the work of local Aboriginal artists.


Thanks to our hosts and to our members who were able to attend on the day.
