 NGV Triennial

Image1

Description

Free and exclusive to Melbourne, the NGV Triennial will showcase major works by more than 100 artists and designers from 32 countries across all four levels of NGV International.

Traversing established, mid-career and emerging practitioners at the forefront of their fields, the NGV Triennial artists and designers have been selected for their diversity and dynamism of practice, including those embracing cutting edge technologies, from 3D printing to robotics, as well as performance, film, painting, drawing, installation and fashion design, tapestry and sculpture.

Highlights from the NGV Triennial will be a number of world-premiere NGV-led commissions, including a major new participatory work by Yayoi Kusama (Japan), in which visitors will ‘obliterate’ a room with flowers; a 15.8m long reclining Buddha sculpture adorned with 3D scanned and cast replicas of classical Greco-Roman sculptures by Xu Zhen (China), creating a meeting of Eastern and Western art traditions; an installation of elaborate, Marie Antoinette-inspired haute couture gowns from Chinese couturier Guo Pei; and a project by ‘smell designer’ Sissel Tolaas (Norway), in which she will recreate the scents of Melbourne.
