By Editorial Staff -

The National Gallery of Victoria Triennial runs through April 7, 2024, at the NGV International in Melbourne. A snapshot of the world today, the event offers audiences a unique opportunity to explore, experience, and understand our modern world through nearly a hundred contemporary design, art, and architecture projects from around the globe. Of these, 25 are world premieres, while many of them will become part of the gallery’s permanent collection.

This edition of the NGV Triennial features works by over 120 leading international artists, designers, and collectives. It embraces a wide range of artforms and disciplines, from robotics to artificial intelligence, textiles to sculpture, and animatronics to conceptual art. The works are divided into three sections, according to the three thematic pillars of the event – that is, Magic, Matter, and Memory. Magic looks at some of the ways in which human spirituality has shaped our world. Matter highlights the central role that nature and natural materials play in defining human culture. Finally, Memory focuses on the history of the people, places, and objects that make up the complex tapestry of our contemporary world.
