Each year the Potter presents around 14 curated exhibitions over 3 levels and more than 900 square metres of gallery space. Through major career surveys, collection-based exhibitions and contemporary projects, we offer audiences opportunities to reflect, debate, enquire and learn. We work to promote the exchange of projects, ideas and practices between artists, curators, writers, the university and members of the larger community both here and overseas.
Based on new research and collaboration, our curated program presents exhibitions of historical and contemporary art. We avoid received wisdoms and deliver new perceptions of art history and culture, approaching culture as something open and dynamic, rather than given.
Our exhibitions examine the depth and diversity of artistic expression throughout the centuries, with an emphasis on Australian art of the twentieth century to the present day. During any one visit to the Potter, you could experience ancient artefacts, international indigenous culture, a contemporary art installation and major works of art by significant Australian artists of the past and present.

Grounded—visitors to the Potter will need to be in peak condition as you will need to be able to climb the stairs to enjoy the museum’s current offerings on level 1 and 2. The Potter’s lift is currently out of order and advice is that it will take a few days to repair. Although not confirmed we hope to have it back in working order on Friday 24 May. Please plan your visit accordingly. We apologize for the inconvenience.
