Australian Centre for Contemporary Art

The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) is the place to come if you like contemporary art.

It's a smallish but leading contemporary Melbourne art gallery.

Australian Centre for Contemporary Art

Every exhibition has a free talk and tour......

.......You'll need to search their website at ACCA to find the times of the talks/tours as they're not at regular times but depend on the exhibits on display.......

........It's a gallery, not a museum so displays are changed regularly.

Australian Centre for Contemporary Art

You'll find displays here of both national and international contemporary artists.

There was a really quirky exhibition on when I went but then I suppose that's pretty normal for this type of art!

It's located in a very unusual contemporary building at 111 Sturt Street, Southbank.......

.......Even the building itself is worth a good look around the outside.

It's only a five minute walk from the NGV International so it's easy to get to.........

........Have a look at the map below to see where it is. Click on the blue writing beneath the map to make it larger and click on the symbols to the top left of the map to move it around and increase/decrease picture size

Opening times are Tues-Fri 10am-5pm and Sat/Sun 11am-6pm unless the displays are being changed and it will be closed.

While you're in the area, check out some of the other art establishments.........

........The nearest is the Margaret Lawrence Gallery at 40 Dodds Street, Southbank which is open Tuesday to Saturday, 12pm - 5pm (I haven't made up a webpage for this gallery yet) and of course there's the National Gallery of Victoria International on St Kilda Road, the Arts Centre next door to the NGV International, NGV Australia in Federation Square, and The Travellers which is a moving art exhibit on a bridge over the Yarra River.
