NGV TEMPORARY CLOSURE

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.

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

Traditional Western mapping methods dictate an abstracted understanding of place that is defined purely by boundaries and location with the aims of establishing ownership and financial value. How does this differentiate from Indigenous mapping and ways of understanding Country? How would our cities look if urban planning followed traditional songlines? How would our design responses be influenced by adopting a more layered and nuanced understanding of place?

Join us at the Footscray Community Arts Centre amphitheatre for a discussion on these topics, before we hear The Orbweavers perform their own mapping methods through musical responses to water and place.
