Eugene von Guérard: Nature Revealed
Tues 10 May, 3.45-5.15pm
The exhibition Eugene von Guérard: Nature Revealed presents a new perspective on the work of Eugene von Guérard (1811–1901), arguably Australia’s most important colonial landscape painter. Drawing on new research and previously unseen paintings and sketchbooks it will argue that Von Guérard’s travel to and within Australia was informed and inspired by his scientific interest in the geography, geology and vegetation of the Australian ‘New World’. 
This discussion with the exhibition curator, Dr Ruth Pullin will introduce key themes, ideas and artworks in the exhibition.   The session will also include an introduction to the online education resource and ideas for incorporating a study of Von Guérard’s work in the curriculum.

Melbourne Winter Masterpieces 2011
Vienna, Art & Design - Klimt, Schiele, Hoffmann, Loos
Tues 21 June, 3.45-5.15pm
In 1897 a group of radical young artists and designers, under the leadership of Gustav Klimt, broke away from the conservative structures of the Vienna Artists Society to initiate an artistic revolution which would have an indelible impact on the art and design of the twentieth century.  Alongside Klimt, artists like Egon Schiele, Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser and Adolf Loos transformed Vienna, capital of the vast, multi-ethnic Austro-Hungarian Empire, from a conservative, provincial city into a dynamic, vibrant metropolis at the forefront of ground-breaking modernism.
Vienna, Art & Design lays bare the creativity, individual genius and opulent glamour of an extraordinary period that saw the birth of the modern world.  Encompassing more than 250 artworks across all media, including painting, drawing, graphic design, furniture, household goods, fashion and jewellery, most never before seen in Australia.
This program, presented by NGV Educators, will introduce the exhibition and the online education resources, and highlight links to the visual arts and design curriculum.
