NGV Triennial with 7am

Take an audio journey through NGV Triennial 2020 with a podcast produced in collaboration with NGV and daily news podcast, 7am. Hosted by Erik Jensen, founding editor of The Saturday Paper and editor-in-chief of Schwartz Media, the three-part series takes you closer to the people, ideas and themes behind key artworks in the exhibition.

Episode 1: Ground Floor

Take a walk around the Ground Level of NGV Triennial 2020 with Erik Jensen, host of NGV Triennial with 7am, and NGV’s Ewan McEoin, The Hugh Williamson Senior Curator of Contemporary Design and Architecture, as they talk about projects by Alicja Kwade, Liam Young, JR and Porky Hefer. Featuring artist interviews and, from the NGV Triennial 2020 publication, guests Badger Bates and Tim Flannery.

Episode 2: Level 2

How do we make and remake meaning, what roles do objects play in this and what is the responsibility of museums in redressing gaps in common historical narratives through their collections? Erik Jensen, host of NGV Triennial with 7am, and the NGV’s Pip Wallis, Curator of Contemporary Art, consider these questions as they explore Level 2 of NGV Triennial 2020 and discuss works by Lee Ufan, Kengo Kuma and Geoff Nees, Angela Tiatia, Fred Wilson and Faye Toogood.

Episode 3: Level 3

Venture to Level 3 with Erik Jensen, host of NGV Triennial with 7am, the NGV’s Myles Russell-Cook, Curator of Indigenous Art, and exhibition artists as they discuss race, identity and loneliness in works by Hannah Brontë, Steven Rhall, Natasha Matila-Smith and Adrian Piper.
