We are very grateful that the Victorian Government has announced its exceptional commitment to fund the construction of Australia’s largest gallery of contemporary art and design, NGV Contemporary. See the Victorian Government budget announcement for more information.
NGV Contemporary will be a landmark, new purpose-built gallery dedicated to displaying local, national and internationally significant contemporary art and design.
Located at 77 Southbank Blvd, and connected to an expansive 18,000 sq/m of new and renewed public green space, NGV Contemporary will be the heart of a reimagined Melbourne Arts Precinct.
NGV Contemporary will elevate Melbourne’s position as a global centre of architectural excellence, creativity and innovation.
The new gallery will ensure visitors can experience the NGV’s Collection of contemporary art and design along with a year round program of major contemporary exhibitions of global significance.
NGV Contemporary will become an epicentre for our local art and design community and a drawcard for all Australians and international tourists.
The design of NGV Contemporary will be completed by an Australian design team appointed through a competition process. This Australian focused design competition will offer an unprecedented and unparalleled platform to showcase Australia’s world-leading design and architecture industries. The competition details and registration date will be announced in the coming weeks.
