Relaxed sessions are an opportunity for visitors who could benefit from a quieter Gallery experience to access NGV exhibitions with fewer people and reduced sensory stimuli. This may include people with autism, disability, dementia, mental health or chronic illness conditions. All ages are welcome.
Moja Moja Life: Misaki Kawai for Kids
Artist Misaki Kawai presents Moja Moja Life: Misaki Kawai for Kids 2020, an indoor playground featuring a display of colourful furry sculptures of dogs and a puppet-making studio. With a love of mimetic word pairings spoken in the Japanese language, such as ‘moja moja’ (hairy), and an interest in children’s creative play and making, Kawai shares her spontaneous and playful approach to creating art with the NGV’s youngest visitors.
The Moja Moja Life: Misaki Kawai for Kids exhibition space is brightly coloured with yellow and pink flooring and wallpaper. Interactive sound elements will be turned down low for the Relaxed Morning programs. See Sensory Map in Resources below for further information
