About the Museum of Contemporary Art

Located on one of the world’s most spectacular sites on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the Museum of Contemporary Art opened its doors to the public in November 1991. Established through a bequest by Australian expatriate artist John Power (1881-1943), who left his personal fortune to the University of Sydney to inform and educate Australians about international contemporary visual art, the MCA is Australia's only museum dedicated to exhibiting, interpreting and collecting contemporary art from across Australia and around the world. A major partner of the Biennale of Sydney, the MCA houses an entire floor dedicated to the MCA Collection, as well as two floors of galleries for exhibitions.

About the Sculpture Terrace
Boasting spectacular views of the world-famous Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, the Sculpture Terrace's pivoting glass doors open out onto the partly covered terrace inviting guests to take-in the beauty of Sydney’s city skyline.

Victory Over Death  (1992)
Artist: Imants Tillers
Museum of Contemporary Art, donated through the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program by the artist, 2013.
