Exploring some of the most globally relevant and pressing issues of our time, including isolation, representation and speculation on the future, the NGV Triennial will present a large-scale exhibition of international contemporary art design and architecture.

Featuring 86 projects by more than 100 artist, designers and collectives from more than 30 countries, the NGV Triennial will open at NGV International on 19th December 2020.

Comprising an ambitious and diverse selection of works showcasing the vanguard of contemporary practise, the exhibition offers a visually arresting and thought provoking view of the world at this unique moment.

The exhibition is underpinned by four themes –Illumination, Reflection, Conservation and Speculation – that invites audiences to embark on a journey of exploration and to discover the intersecting ideas through the works on the display.

The four thematic pillars have emerged from the collective work presented in the NGV Triennial illuminating the pressing concerns that preoccupy the artist.
