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.

Melbourne Design Week

Partu (Skin) by Johnny Nargoodah and Trent Jansen

Presented by Gallery Sally Dan-Cuthbert and ARC ONE Gallery

Sorry you missed this one!
Free entry
Arc One,
45 Flinders Ln,
Melbourne

OPENING: FRI 13 MAR, 6–8PM
FLOOR TALK: SAT 14 MAR, 3.30–4.30PM
Johnny Nargoodah is a Nyikina man who has spent much of his life working with leather as a saddler on remote cattle stations; Trent Jansen is an avant-garde object designer from Thirroul in New South Wales who regularly experiments with leather and animal pelts in his collectable design work. ‘Partu’ is the Walmajarri word for ‘skin’, and is also their latest collaborative project experimenting with unorthodox outcomes resulting from the confluence of their oddly mismatched sensibilities and skills in working animal skins.

Come to ARC ONE Gallery on SAT 14 at 3.30 to hear insights from the designers on the cross-cultural collaboration and experimental making processes that lead to ‘Partu’, Johnny Nargoodah and Trent Jansen’s latest collaboration in furniture design, realised in animal skin.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
