NGV Kids presents a range of specially developed exhibitions, programs and publications for children and families.

Fiona Hall Uneasy Seasons

Uneasy Seasons reflects leading Australian artist Fiona Hall’s lifelong passion for the natural world and her concerns about growing pressures on the environment. Nestled beneath large treehouses are two contrasting spaces – one for children and one for teenagers – in which to contemplate environmental issues and take part in making activities. The space for children is a brightly lit environment that signals new beginnings. The dark, forest-like environment for teenagers is a night-time space in which to contemplate the vastness of the universe. Participants are invited to respond to the space with their own thoughts about the world.

Patrick Pound’s Great Expedition for Kids

Especially for his exhibition Patrick Pound: The Great Exhibition, Patrick has created an activity trail that takes children on an expedition. Armed with a map, children explore the collections of photographs and objects on display and chart their own course by completing activities, making discoveries and finding new ways of looking at the world.
