Triennial: Voices at NGV Triennial
National Gallery of Victoria
180 St Kilda Road, Melbourne
The NGV Triennial is a large-scale exhibition of international art, design and architecture, open at the National Gallery of Victoria from 15 December 2017.
The exhibition presents a snapshot of contemporary art and design while exploring five key themes: movement, change, virtual, body and time.
The Melbourne School of Design is taking part in this global conversation, with lecturer in Digital Architecture Design Paul Loh exploring the virtual theme as a thought leader for Triennial: Voices.
Voices is both a multimedia editorial project and a physical space within the heart of the exhibition, featuring interviews, texts, podcasts, film and other visual material from local and international commentators.
Five academic thought leaders from five different disciplines at the University of Melbourne have each contributed to Voices within one of Triennial’s themes.
Paul’s exploration of the virtual theme includes Virtual Gestures: a project that applies contemporary virtual reality technology to the work of 18th century artist Giovanni Piranesi.
