About the Show
In a digital world, identity is flexible – race, class, gender, age and socio-economic background are determined from behind a screen. In the absence of behavioural guidelines and prescribed etiquette, who are we in an age of technology? Experts on both sides debate: ‘is your virtual self the real you?’
Featuring the work of over 100 artists and designers from 32 countries, the NGV Triennial surveys the world of art and design, across cultures, scales, geographies and perspectives.
A free exhibition, the NGV Triennial is a celebration of contemporary art and design practice that traverses all four levels of NGV International, as well as offering a rich array of programs.
The NGV Triennial explores cutting edge technologies, architecture, animation, performance, film, painting, drawing, fashion design, tapestry and sculpture.
Visitors have an opportunity to look at the world and its past, present and future through the eyes of some of the most creative minds working today.
