In 2023, ACCA celebrates two important milestones – 21 years in our award-winning building designed by Wood Marsh and 40 years as a leading producer of contemporary visual art and culture in Australia.
ACCA was established in 1983 with a commitment to creating a space for the presentation and interpretation of contemporary art that might ‘not easily occupy a place in the normal exhibition system’.
Forty years later that commitment remains at the heart of everything we do. Today, ACCA has a celebrated history of achievement – in commissioning artists to make new, risk-taking and career-defining work; creating education programs that change the way young people think about art; and presenting new art and ideas that reflect upon and connect deeply with the world in which we live in.
Watch our anniversary video featuring interviews with artists Callum Morton, Patricia Piccinini, Yhonnie Scarce and Paul Yore. This video was produced by Guilty and Positive Ape to celebrate ACCA’s anniversaries – 21 years in our award-winning building designed by Wood Marsh and 40 years as a leading producer of contemporary visual art and culture in Australia.
ACCA acknowledges with deep appreciation, the support of Jason Byrne, Josh and Emma Robbins, Yianni Rowlands, Mick Turner, and Trudy Hellier, among many others who helped to realise this video project for ACCA’s anniversary.
