With a focus on exhibiting rather than collecting, the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) is dedicated to the promotion of innovative, evocative, creative and challenging art.
Designed by Melbourne based architects, Wood Marsh, the building itself is an iconic masterpiece, the rustic steel mass a landmark in Melbourne's inner city art precinct.
ACCA hosts five exhibition seasons each year by both local and international artists. Their exhibitions remain innovative through commission; artists are allowed encouraged to produce new work specifically for ACCA, a process that fosters creativity and experimentation.
Be sure to visit the ACCA shop to peruse current art journals and publications and even take a little piece of art home with you.
