Making NGV Triennial showcases the working methods, materials and research of three artists and designers included in NGV Triennial, along with the work of NGV exhibition designers and curators. The practitioners included – Hoda Afshar, Jean Jullien and Bethan Laura Wood – each represent one of the three thematic strands of the exhibition: Memory, Magic and Matter. Each is an example of a different model of commissioning, reflecting the NGV’s diverse methods of working with contemporary artists and designers.
For many artists and designers, the role of documentation and archiving contributes to the production and dissemination of new knowledge and ideas. The material shown is a living record of the artists’ creative processes and an insight into how the NGV commissions contemporary art and design.
