NGV GETS ADVENTUROUS

10 Jun 2013

The National Gallery of Victoria has announced it is set to embark on its ‘largest and most ambitious’ exhibition, when it creates ‘Melbourne Now’ during November.

The program will include 130 artists and 30 curators who are set to activate spaces in and around NGV International and the Ian Potter Centre at Federation Square.

The show will bring together over 250 installations and explores the idea that Melbourne as a city has been shaped significantly by its artists, designers and architects.

NGV director, Tony Ellwood, said the project was an ambitious one, but also an exciting one for the NGV and its audience.

“This exhibition is a collaborative in every sense. Through community forums, commissions, acquisitions and designer engagement, Melbourne Now will survey what is current in creative practice in ways that are truly engaging and unexpected,” Mr Ellwood said.

“We are determined too that Melbourne Now be a legacy project for the NGV by having a lasting impact on our collections, our audiences and our relationship with the arts community of our city,” he added.
