More than 60 artists from over 30 countries, including Ron Mueck, Yayoi Kusama, Guo Pei, Richard Mosse, Ben Quilty, Neri Oxman, PET Lamp and Bula’bula Artists were announced today as part of the inaugural NGV Triennial, an unprecedented global showcase of art, design and architecture set to open at NGV International on 15 December 2017.
The FREE, Melbourne-exclusive exhibition will traverse all four levels of NGV International and display art and design together, from 3D printing and robotics, to performance, film, painting, drawing, fashion design, tapestry and sculpture. The exhibition will also present work from regions not strongly represented in the NGV’s current holdings including Africa, South America and the Middle East.
Argentinian artist Alexandra Kehayoglou travelled to Melbourne for today’s announcement, appearing with her major 8m-long work No Longer Creek. Using her family’s traditional carpet-making techniques, Kehayoglou documents the effects of human activity upon landscapes in Argentina in her intricate and large-scale works.
