The Ian Potter Centre is the first major gallery in the world to be exclusively dedicated to Australian art. This gallery is home to the NGV's massive collection of Aussie artwork, ranging from the Colonial period through to contemporary works. 

The centre comprises of more than 20 galleries, all housed within a landmark building in Fed Square.
