Among the artists: Paulina Ołowska
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.
In defiance of oppression and amnesia, Paulina Ołowska brings Slavic women’s folklore to life. Zanele Muholi gives increased visibility to LGBTQIA communities through the portrait, here turning her camera on herself to assert her own agency over reductive images of black women in the media. Also challenging the history and legacies of colonisation, Edson Chagas’s photographs of sitters wearing masks bring self-determination to an object that also represents the historical trade of bodies and culture.
