Melbourne Now

The largest and most ambitious exhibition in Melbourne’s history is about to hit the National Gallery of Victoria.

Over 300 arts practitioners will come together for Melbourne Now, a celebration of the latest art, architecture, design, performance and cultural practices of creative Melbourne. Among them are a slew of Next Wave alumni, including artists, designers, sponsors, collaborators and staff.

Melbourne Now will present major new commissions and a range of new works by leading emerging and established artists. The project encompasses the fullest range of contemporary art practice, from painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics and contemporary jewellery, to photography, video, sound, performance, installation and online projects.

We are incredibly proud to be associated with such a talented group, check out the full list of alumni below!
