The Grand Tour: Cities Shaped by Art

Learn the essentials of art history with ACCA's chosen team of experts with a refreshing complimentary cocktail in hand. Just as Melbourne's arts culture has shaped the city, the same goes for many of the world's biggest metropolitan cities. ACCA has picked out a group of 'tour guides' for the Grand Tour lecture series to take you through the world's best galleries, arts events, and architecture, as well as visit the writers, thinkers, and artists that have shaped each city. This month, take a journey to New York City, where art professor Dr Chris McAuliffe will guide you through the colourful creative scene of one of the world's great cultural centres. Now based in Melbourne, McAuliffe was once a resident of New York's East Village, where he accumulated vast knowledge on the galleries, architectural highlights and urban geography of the region. Today, McAuliffe is a professor of art at the Australian National University's School of Art.  As always, guests will be treated to a complimentary themed cocktail to ease you through your travels. This time, the Melbourne Gin Company will create a New York-inspired cocktail – a mini MGC Martini. The bar is open from 5pm, and the talk will run from 6-7pm. More Grand Tours... Join curator Rebecca Coates for an art history tour of Brazil's São Paulo (Aug 15), a tour of Yekaterinburg in Russia with artist Lisa Radford (Sep 12) and finish up with an jaunt through LA with ACCA curator Annika Kristensen (Oct 24).
