ANAM at NGV: Inspiration | An old bee farm

Inspired by the NGV’s Australian Art collection at the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) curate and perform musical responses to artworks in the Collection.

NGV Curators and ANAM Head of Percussion Peter Neville discuss the history of the artwork and the inspiration behind each musical response followed by a viewing of the performance in a series of fortnightly virtual programs.
