Australian Muslim Artists (AMA) is an annual shortlisted exhibition that provides a valuable platform for upcoming and established artists to showcase their work. This year’s immersive exhibition brings together the work of seventeen visionary artists who have redefined the boundaries of artistic expression. Each artwork invites you to explore the artist’s unique perspective, pushing the envelope of creativity and challenging traditional notions of art.
From gripping compositions to striking installations, discover an array of styles, mediums and ideas that highlight the diversity and creative breadth of Muslim artists, bound by their dedication to navigating the evolving realm of contemporary art.
In 2023, the Islamic Museum of Australia celebrates our fifth year in partnership with La Trobe University, who sponsor the AMA Art Prize. This year, we also welcome our new partnership with MCCA Islamic Finance and Investments, inaugural sponsor of the AMA People’s Choice Prize.
