I really like coming to ACCA, and sometimes the exhibitions can be amazingly mind-blowing, but they can also be a little hit-and-miss. Yesterday I went and saw Desire Lines which was a group collection of moving image pieces. The art was all really abstract and because it was predominantly made-up of audio/visual pieces, the space was extremely dimly-lit, so much so that the brightness of the TVs and screens made it a little awkward navigating the darkness when it was time to move on! I really should say that if you like visual video-style art, then this might be a real win, so definitely go and check it out.
I've given this one four stars because the space itself is just amazing. The exterior is great to look at and an architectural boon for the City of Melbourne. ACCA's forecourt is also home to Yellow Peril, which is a beautiful modernist sculpture which was once positioned on Swanston Street. It's also really nice going to ACCA and seeing how varied the space itself can become. The current exhibition sees the hall-like gallery divided into between 10 - 15 different gallery spaces, it's so versatile!
