The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) has announced one of the most ambitious programs in its history, the first ever NGV Triennial. Featuring more than 6 artists from over 30 countries, the NGV Triennial will include major presentations from international and Australian artists across all four levels of NGV International.
Selected for their diversity and dynamism of practice, the inaugural NGV Triennial artists and designers are embracing cutting edge technologies, from 3D printing to robotics, as well as performance, film, painting, drawing, fashion design, tapestry and sculpture. In particular, the exhibition will showcase work from regions not strongly represented in the NGV’s current holdings, including Africa, South America and the Middle East.
Tony Ellwood, Director of NGV said, “We believe that the ambition, depth and diversity of the artists and designers in the inaugural NGV Triennial will ensure that our audience has a truly unforgettable cultural experience. Through the building of the NGV’s collection of contemporary art and design, we hope the NGV Triennial will become a critical and ongoing asset for Victoria.”
This event is free and exclusive to Melbourne. The NGV Triennial opens 15 December 2017. For more information, see www.ngv.vic.gov.au
