The Fox: NGV Contemporary

The Fox: NGV Contemporary

National Gallery for Contemporary Art and Design

NGV Contemporary is the newest of three Victorian public art galleries within one magnificent arts precinct on St Kilda Road.

The new building will be named The Fox: NGV Contemporary after receiving a $100M donation from Lindsay and Paula Fox. The gift, the single largest amount ever granted by a living donor to a cultural institution in Australia, was announced on Lindsay's 85th birthday.

The $100 million will go towards construction of the 18,000-square metre multilevel wing that will house the gallery's contemporary art collection once it is completed in 2028.


We are very grateful that the Victorian Government has announced its exceptional commitment to fund the construction of Australia's largest gallery of contemporary art and design, NGV Contemporary. See the Victorian Government budget announcement for more information.

NGV Contemporary will be a landmark, new purpose-built gallery dedicated to displaying local, national and internationally significant contemporary art and design.

Located at 77 Southbank Blvd, and connected to an expansive 18,000 sq/m of new and renewed public green space, NGV Contemporary will be the heart of a reimagined Melbourne Arts Precinct.

NGV Contemporary will elevate Melbourne's position as a global centre of architectural excellence, creativity and innovation.

The new gallery will ensure visitors can experience the NGV's Collection of contemporary art and design along with a year round program of major contemporary exhibitions of global significance.

NGV Contemporary will become an epicentre for our local art and design community and a drawcard for all Australians and international tourists.
