Reconnected: a recovery story
4 July – 11 October
To celebrate our region (and world) emerging from the unprecedented conditions resulting from the recent pandemic, MAC presents this exhibition of hope.
Local artists have been invited to reflect on recovery and a positive way forward, and to share that vision with the Lake Macquarie community.
This exhibition will reconnect artists and the community directly, in the physical sense, beyond the digital and distanced world they've inhabited over the past months. Inclusive of recent painting, sculpture, photography, video and installation, installed inside the Art Museum and out, this exhibition looks on the brighter and more positive side of life.
Most of the artworks in this show will also be for sale, offering the community a chance to support their artists, the museum to celebrate the wealth of creativity in the City, and the artists a professional opportunity on the other side of isolation.
A MAC exhibition project in consultation with the community.

YOUR COLLECTION: yapang
Until 27 September
The word ‘yapang’(pronounced yah-pung) means journey or pathway in Awabakal language, and is the name given to the newly dedicated program of Aboriginal exhibitions and related projects within MAC. In line with this, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander focus area of the collection is now known under the name ‘yapang’. This exhibition not only celebrates these initiatives, but also launches the commitment to showcase collection works permanently in the MAC exhibition space.
