About the organisation
The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia is home to NGV’s Collection of Australian art. NGV Australia opened in November 2002 with the generous support of The Ian Potter Foundation. In December 2008, NGV Australia welcomed its 6 millionth visitor.
NGV Australia has a collection of over 26,000 works, including paintings, decorative arts, photography, prints, drawings, sculpture, fashion and textiles and jewellery. It presents the story of Australian art through a comprehensive program of permanent and temporary exhibitions across 6000 square meters of exhibition space.
In 2004, Dr Joseph Brown OBE, AO gifted a significant part of his collection to the Gallery. More than 150 works from Australia’s most respected 19th and 20th century artists are now on permanent display at NGV Australia. More information about the organisation and its collection
