Australian Centre for Contemporary Art

Artist and crowd at Family Art Day 2016 - ACCA

Since it was established in 1983, the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) has built a reputation as a flagship contemporary art space. Situated in an award-winning iconic building in the Southbank arts precinct, ACCA describes itself as a champion of new art and bold ideas.

As part of the festival, ACCA is offering two exciting programs.

The first is an evening session for teachers on Thursday 4 May. Led by Artistic Director Max Delany, it will include a private exhibition talk and viewing of a major solo exhibition of Melbourne-based artist Claire Lambe, as part of ACCA’s Influential Australian Artist series. The 90-minute program will begin with a private viewing and floor talk of the current exhibition.

On Sunday 7 May, the focus shifts to families, a fun day out that gives the opportunity to think and make at ACCA with practicing artists.

ACCA will present two, different 45-minute workshops designed by the practicing artists. Participants can rotate through these workshops across two hours. Each participant will make at least two artworks to take home.
