The Ian Potter Museum of Art displays the Univeristy of Melbourne's art collection and offers elegant surroundings for a variety of functions and activities. The Potter is a multi-award winning contemporary building designed by Nonda Katsalidis, conveniently located at the Carlton end of Swanston Street.
Comprising three gallery levels and a multifunction room, the Potter is suitable for functions, such as, pre- and post-lecture drinks, talks, morning teas, launches, receptions and smaller exclusive events.
The Potter displays a changing exhibition program and is interested in hosting events which engage and connect with art. Proposed events are required to compliment the exhibitions at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, Art and Culture, and other University related activities.
Requests must be lodged a minimum of 6 weeks ahead of the proposed event. For further information regarding your museum hire please contact Amanda Morris.
Now open, The world is not a foreign land brings together work by Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Ngarra, Rusty Peters, Freda Warlapinni and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions—the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley, and North-eastern Arnhem Land—each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
