About the Show
How can art inspire the community to take action and create meaningful change? Artists from around the world share their thoughts on the power of art in a series of personal stories and poetry.
Melbourne Artists for Asylum Seekers (MAFA) is a group of volunteers dedicated to hosting quality art workshops for Asylum Seekers both inside and outside of detention. The group aims to use art to raise awareness of the lives and talents of asylum seekers across the wider Australian community.
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.
