It's not all about the NGV! Just around the corner is the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art or ACCA. It holds an important place in the Melbourne art world - in the Australian art scene. Artistic director Max Delaney and his creative team present exhibitions...More

I came here for the exhibition Unfinished Business: Perspectives on Art and Feminism. The exhibition covered artworks in a variety of mediums. I found Sarah Goffman's piece entitled "I am with you" particularly powerful. The digital artworks were also really good. The gallery itself is...More

This is must visit for lovers of challenging visual art. This small gallery always presents challenging & creative displays. Enjoyed retrospective of works by Kader Attia which raises questions about war & suffering. Entry is free & barista to serve nice coffee.

Given its name, I expected more from this venue. A huge modern and interesting building, which is worth a look in itself, but then the exhibition spaces didn't deliver. I'll go anywhere to check out a modern art or sculpture exhibition and I've seen better...More

I like the fact that ACCA exists, and that it has a very specific mandate. From the outside, the architecture comprises a minimalist iron superstructure (which can appear imposing and rather unwelcome), but this does mean very large and airy exhibition spaces inside. The art...More
