This purpose-built gallery showcases one of Melbourne's most significant private collections of Australian contemporary art

Located on the corner opposite the National Gallery of Victoria and Melbourne Theatre Company's Southbank Theatre, Buxton Contemporary is the home of Melbourne property developer and collector Michael Buxton's art collection. He’s got a great eye for contemporary Australasian art, and his first exhibition included work by Patricia Piccinini, Mikala Dwyer, Emily Floyd, Marco Fusinato and Shaun Gladwell. He's also collected work by luminaries like Howard Arkley, Mike Parr, Tracey Moffatt and Bill Henson.

The 2,200 square metre gallery, which opened in March 2018, is designed by leading Australian architects Fender Katsalidis, the team behind Hobart's MONA. It features five large galleries and a teaching space, which is rather appropriate as the building is part of the University of Melbourne’s Victorian College of the Arts.
