The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art is an Australian flagship contemporary art space, and a leading centre for the artistic and wider communities to participate in a critically engaged contemporary art culture that encourages curiosity and transformation.
Established in Melbourne in 1983 and now situated in an iconic award-winning architecturally designed building in the Southbank arts precinct, ACCA develops exhibitions exploring the ideas and work of significant artists from around the world, commissions ambitious new works by local and international artists, and delivers a range of curatorial, education and public programs including talks, lectures, symposia, performances, screenings, music and events.
Renowned for the outstanding quality of its programs, and its capacity to bring inspiring Australian and international art to audiences, ACCA is a champion of new art and bold ideas, and a dynamic platform for current and future generations of artists, thinkers, enthusiasts and supporters of the visual arts.
ACCA acknowledges the Boon Wurrung as the traditional owners and sovereign custodians of the land on which ACCA is situated, along with the Wurundjeri and all Kulin Nations, and we extend our respects to their ancestors and elders past and present, and to all First Nations people.
