Boasting an eclectic design by renowned architects Fender Katsalidis and featuring over 350 major artworks and five public exhibition galleries, Buxton Contemporary has become a centrepiece of Melbourne’s arts scene and a vital collection of contemporary Australian art.

Created from the personal art collection of property developer Michael Buxton, this museum showcases decades of contemporary works ranging in depths and mediums – from individual paintings to grandiose multimedia projections.

 

As part of the Victorian College of the Arts at the University of Melbourne, the collection has become an important forum through which the university welcomes local and international audiences to experience modern Australian art.
