About the exhibition

The MCA Collection consists of more than 4,000 works bought since the constitution of the MCA at Circular Quay in 1989. The MCA also manages the Power Collection on behalf of the University of Sydney, works brought together since the late 1960s through the JW Power Bequest. Many of the works acquired through the JW Power Bequest were works by international contemporary artists, including multiples and works on paper. This exhibition focused on these works on paper, works which played with the structure of books, used written communication as a starting point, or had multiple parts reflecting the pages of a book.
