NGV Triennial


This New Year i've struggled to make any resolutions, but one thing I did decide was to try to go on some kind of adventure at least once a month, whether that be going for a hike somewhere i've never been, going to see a show, or visiting a museum i've never been to. I think it will help keep me sane while navigating my insane job, and also help motivate me to start blogging again. Also, I want to finally get myself a decent camera, because yes, I still take all my photos on my iPhone, and especially on my trip last weekend to Steavenson Falls, I was really regretting my lack of proper camera.

Anyway, in the theme of adventures, this past weekend, my mum came to Melbourne to help out with G while we're working these school holidays (anyone know or have any connections to help me get one of those magical jobs that have all school holidays off work - without having to become a teacher!?). We decided to venture into the the city to visit the National Gallery - NGV and their latest exhibition, the NGV Triennial. The whole exhibition is free and I was really impressed! My only regret is that I went in there hungry and therefore didn't spend as much time as I would like there. I didn't really know what to expect, except I knew there was a Yayoi Kusama installation, which I loved, and unexpectedly, there was also an installation by Teamlab, the awesome people who put on the DMM Planets exhibition I went to in Tokyo the year before last!

The whole thing was also really great for kids, and there was a separate exhibition with hands on things for kids (not sure if it was actually related to the Triennial).
The NGV Triennial runs until 15 April 2018.
