From our team here at NGV, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and after following closely the State and Federal Government’s advice, we have extended the NGV’s temporary closure until 30 June.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for current exhibitions or upcoming programs, our team will be in contact with you shortly to arrange full refunds.

We encourage you to visit our website and follow #NGVEveryDay on social media for updates and daily inspiration before welcoming you to the NGV later in 2020.

We are very grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and wish everyone well during this time.

Melbourne Design Week

Counterfactual City Series

Presented by RMIT School of Architecture and Urban Design

Sorry you missed this one!
Free entry
RMIT Design Hub,
Level 3 Foyer,
Building 100,
Victoria St, Carlton

The Counterfactual City series presents visions for public sites displayed as street posters erected around the city; these propositions are not based on scenarios that we know, but ones that should, could or would have been. Predicated on a counterfactual notion – a singular ‘what if?’ – each poster presents a radical alternative to the existing status quo of urban development. This series demonstrates how we might effect change to policies through speculative design.

Please Note: for an event Map and to view the series exhibition, visit RMIT Design Hub, Level 3. Or follow and visit the Counterfactual City projects at various locations around Melbourne via the event Instagram and website.
