Art is a time machine | Symposia Series
NGV International, St Kilda Road, Melbourne

A series of free artist’s talks at the NGV kicks off the conversation about: working between the virtual and the grounded; contemporary intercultural collaboration; walking together as creative practice; and art as material philosophy, all in the context of global contemporaneity.
The Art as a time machine Symposia Series is organised in collaboration with our major education partner La Trobe University.
