NGV TEMPORARY CLOSURE

From our team here at NGV, we’d like to express our very best wishes to our community at this time.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19 and after following closely the State and Federal Government’s advice, we have extended the NGV’s temporary closure until 30 June.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for current exhibitions or upcoming programs, our team will be in contact with you shortly to arrange full refunds.

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

We are very grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and wish everyone well during this time.

Panel Discussion: Publishing After the Internet

Sorry you missed this one!
Free entry Sat 14 Mar, 12pm–1pm

Material and formal aspects of the book and the technologies used to inscribe it are always in flux. With each transformation (from clay to parchment to papyrus to paper to pixels) those who hold the book in common (readers, authors, designers, typographers, printers, publishers) are called on to renegotiate the idea of the book itself. In this discussion designers, publishers and digital artists will share their perspectives on what it means to publish in light of recent transformations of the book brought about by digital and networked cultures.

Speakers

Peter Fengler. De Player is a polymorphic production platform in Rotterdam (NL), which has been putting together programs on the cutting edge of performance art, experimental music and the visual arts. De Player emphasises the importance of sound, and the performance and positioning of sound within the visual arts and contemporary experimental music.

Andy Simionato and Karen Ann Donnachie. Atomic Activity Books is an experimental publishing concern founded in 2008 by Karen ann Donnachie and Andy Simionato, the artist-duo sometimes known as Donnachie, Simionato and Sons, makers of the on- and off-line macro-project called ‘This is a magazine (about nothing)’. Atomic Activity Books publishes experimental deviations and non-standard behaviours.

Freya Copeland. Replika Publishing is a three-dimensional magazine bringing together artists from all spheres to explore a unified concept. With each issue artists, writers, musicians and creators of all descriptions are invited to explore a given theme, and to respond with an object-based, serialised work.

Autumn Royal. Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening. LA has recently established a publishing platform Disclaimer, a journal for new thinking and writing on listening and sound.
