The National Gallery of Victoria has launched a live in-studio series with Australian artists and designers, giving viewers an insight into their life and practice while in isolation.
Artist and designers including Sydney artist Agatha Gothe-Snape, musician and artist Jon Campbell, iconic furniture designer Mary Featherston AM, and contemporary artist Yhonnie Scarce will invite viewers into their studios to discuss their practice and new ways of working during lockdown.
The in-studio visits will showcase Australian artists and designers, who have been exhibited at the Gallery or are in the NGV Collection, in-conversation with NGV curators.
The series has already streamed studio visits with Snape, Campbell, Featherston and Scarce, as well as Gunditjmara and Torres Strait Islander artist Lisa Waup. These visits are available on demand on the NGV Channel on NGV’s website.
