The Melbourne Art Gallery is set to be the new home for the artworks of contemporary Australian artists.
Melbourne’s Art Museum, which opened in the 1970s, has become a hub for the city’s art scene.
It is set for a major redevelopment and is to be transformed into a new exhibition space for contemporary artists.
It will be home to a new gallery and gallery space, an exhibition space and a gallery courtyard.
It also plans to house an interactive art exhibition in the new space.
“The Art Gallery will be a museum for contemporary Australian art and a venue for public engagement,” a statement said.
“We have chosen the site in Melbourne’s inner west, the city that was the birthplace of the Melbourne Art Fair, as our new home.”
Melbourne Art Gallery was originally designed to house the works of artists including Andy Warhol, David Furnish and Ralph Steadman.
It was later converted into a museum, which closed in 2004.
It has since been closed for a number of years, and a redevelopment plan has been in the works.
Melburnians are excited about the new location, but some fear the move will be too much for some of the city´s most important artworks.
“I hope that the Arts Centre will remain as a site that reflects the history of the City of Melbourne and our heritage,” an artist told the ABC.
“That is the way it should be, it should not be changed or destroyed.”
It is not the first time Melbourne has been seen as a potential site for the new museum.
In 2011, a public consultation was held into the future of the arts precinct, which was a major public space in the city.
The project was approved in 2014.
