From our team here at NGV, we would like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time. We are currently closed to the public and will reopen on Saturday, 27 June, 2020.

In line with Victorian Chief Health Officer’s guidance, the NGV will implement a variety of public health and physical distancing measures including free timed ticketing, appropriate queue management and increased deep cleaning of facilities, as well as increased hand sanitiser stations.

We encourage you to continue to visit our website and follow #NGVEveryDay on social media for updates on our reopening and daily inspiration.

We are very grateful for the loyalty of the NGV community and look forward to welcoming you back soon.


Melbourne Now countdown – day 13

In the NGV Multimedia department we are busily putting the finishing touches on our Melbourne Now App in collaboration with Carter Digital.

This free App going to be a great tool to help you navigate Melbourne Now.

Due to the vast nature of the exhibition it will be a handy resource to have with you as you are enjoying the Galleries.

The Melbourne Now App will allow you to quickly and easily browse the wealth of programs and events associated with Melbourne Now (a list of programs are also available on the NGV website).

The App will also allow you add programs you are interested in attending  to your smart phone’s calendar.

Both the App and the website can also be used to investigate information about artists associated with the exhibition as well as helping you explore the projects they’ve created.

We’re very keen to share in your experiences of Melbourne Now too via the hash tag #MelbourneNow, with a feed to be displayed inside the NGV itself.

We are getting very close to the launch of this exciting exhibition.  Like the rest of the NGV Multimedia team I am looking forward to seeing the motif of this vibrant and intriguing city explored from the view point of its most creative inhabitants.

You can download the Melbourne Now App from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store from the 22 Nov.

The Melbourne Now App is supported by Melbourne Now Champions Robin Campbell and Bruce Parncutt.
