Past program

NGV International

Temporary exhibitions for Kids
Ground Level

The NGV children’s gallery is transformed into an underwater world inspired by art, having fun at the beach and looking after the environment – it is a sea adventure that welcomes the youngest and oldest of visitors to an enchanting environment created by French artist Jean Jullien.

In an exclusive opportunity offered just to NGV Members, preview the exhibition before it opens to the public and meet the Paris-based artist himself in an exclusive Artist Meet & Greet.

Members and their friends and family are welcome to join this intimate evening, which includes a private tour of the exhibition led by Jullien and NGV Curator of Children’s Programs Kate Ryan, light refreshments, and a book signing by Jullien to launch the publication that accompanies the exhibition: RIFIFI: Jean Jullien for Kids.

NGV Members enjoy discounted pricing on the publication. Pre-purchase your copy with your program ticket, or buy a copy on the night.
