About the Show
How can art and design influence change and contribute to a positive future?
We Change the World considers the work of contemporary artists and designers that prompt us to question our current world and consider our own capacity for change.
To mark the opening of the exhibition, exhibiting artists and designers Emily Floyd, Simone Slee and Yan Huang, along with the NGV’s Head of Learning, Michele Stockley, reflect on the concept of change and the role of art and design in shaping, questioning and exploring the world around us.
Hosted by NGV Assistant Curator Katharina Prugger, the conversation will consider the variety of ways that artists and designers challenge us to consider our own potential for change, empower us to be creative and think critically, and prompt action.
