Day 3 in Melbourne was basically about Australian Art. I was impressed by the The Ian Potter Centre. It is the world’s first major gallery dedicated exclusively to Australian art. It is a spectacular showcase comprising over 20 galleries housed within a landmark architectural complex. I became obsessed with Aboriginal art in the first floor of the Museum as some of you might have noticed from my Instagram pictures.

I read that “to understand Aboriginal art in the 20th and 21st century, we need to consider some history of our people. Australian Aboriginals have inhabited Australia since the dawn of recorded history and are considered to have the oldest continuing culture on earth.” (find more here) I also enjoyed the photography exhibition of Jeff Wall. I loved the large scale photographs back lit by light boxes.
