Celebrating new and ambitious local art and design, Melbourne NOW will cross a range of contemporary disciplines including fashion and jewellery, painting, sculpture, architecture, ceramics, video, performance, printmaking and publishing.

The exhibition will mark the ten-year anniversary of the inaugural 2013 exhibition which was an unprecedented survey of some of the most exciting local contemporary practitioners. Melbourne NOW will again highlight the latest art, architecture, design and cultural practice shaping Melbourne.

The exhibition will also mark the second edition of the hugely popular ‘Design Wall’ showcasing work by dozens of the city’s most innovative design practitioners, as well as popular NGV Kids interactive projects.

Bold in scale, Melbourne NOW will be displayed throughout all levels of The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, including permanent collection galleries, showcasing new works and commissions by emerging, mid-career and senior practitioners as well as local collectives.
