The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia - Pleasure and Reality. If you love works that can be both pretty and perverse at the same time, this one is a must see. 5 contemporary artists all create very different works that seem to both contrast and compliment each other, and the line between pleasure and reality is explored. [CBD]

Lamington Drive - Risographica 3. 28 of Jacky Winter Groups finest artists explore the medium of A3 2-colour risographs. Better yet, you can pick up a limited edition print for only $50, and help out Oxfam's International Crisis Fund while you're at it! [Collingwood]

Art Gallery of Ballarat - The 2015 Archibald Prize. Although this isn't strictly in Melbourne, if you were looking for an excuse to take a road-trip, this is it. Definitely worth a check out this year! [Ballarat]
