With its imposing red-rust structure designed by Wood Marsh, ACCA is one of the most recognisable buildings in Melbourne. Founded in 1983, and transferring to its current purpose-built premises in Southbank in 2002, the Centre is one of Australia's leading public institutions for contemporary art.
The geometrically-aligned ediface houses a number of exhibitions at any one time as well as serving as a hub for lectures, symposiums, performances, live music and educational programs. Previous exhibiting artists include Barbara Kruger, Mikala Dwyer, eX de Medici and Bill Henson. The rotating schedule of exhibitions means that every time you come back to the gallery there's always something different to enjoy.
