Commissioned for the new dedicated children’s gallery, Express Yourself: Romance Was Born for Kids is an interactive exhibition for children specifically designed for the NGV by Sydney-based fashion house Romance Was Born. This contemporary project for kids provides the ideal platform for designers Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett to share their whimsical and compelling vision with visitors of all ages. The captivating results provide a fantastical, larger than life environment for participation, play and creativity that blends fashion, art, music and design. The exhibition will feature works from collections past and present and will focus on the trademark collaborations and creative themes that underpin their practice. The project will also draw on the NGV Collection as one of its sources of inspiration.
The NGV wishes to acknowledge Tim Fairfax AC and Gina Fairfax for their generous support of the NGVforKIDS 2014/15 summer program.
The NGVforKIDS program is supported by a grant from the Truby & Florence Williams Charitable Trust. This grant provides crucial encouragement to the corporate and philanthropic community to support children’s programming at NGV.
