Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) presents a collection of linoprints and poetry by Kevin Gilbert, an influential Wiradjuri activist, poet, playwright and visual artist.

Gilbert was a political activist - an instrumental figure in the Aboriginal land rights and sovereignty movement, participating in the 1972 establishment of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra and the ‘Treaty 88’ campaign. He believed art was the most powerful tool to draw attention to continued injustices suffered by Aboriginal people, and to suggest ways forward.

A Message to be Heard is one of six current exhibitions at MAMA. A visit to the museum includes a visit to MAMA Store, featuring independent Australian designers and makers from the Murray region. Canvas Eatery is located on the ground floor of the museum, and takes in the sunny aspect of the QEII Square gardens.

MAMA is open seven days a week, and entry to the museum is always free.
