Level 3, Contemporary Art & Design

28 Sep 18 – 3 Feb 19

OPEN 10am–5pm DAILY

The NGV presents an exhibition of new and recent works by celebrated Australian artist Polly Borland. Borland is a Melbourne born artist who now lives in Los Angeles and is known for her photographs of noted figures including Queen Elizabeth II, Nick Cave and Gwendoline Christie. The recent period of Borland’s practice has seen her explore more abstract and surreal imagery. Borland creates images that invite the viewer to see the human form in unfamiliar ways, infused both with humour and an unsettling disquiet. The exhibition comprises works from several of Borland’s important recent series, including Monster, Bunny, Smudge, and a series of new works.
