Art and design interpret pressing global issues

The future of the Earth and human beings is precarious
We are going through a historical period in which problems of social, economic and environmental origin are the order of the day. Therefore, now that nothing is certain, art and design help us give voice to our thoughts and concerns. Thoughts and concerns that, after all, are common to us all.
Painting, sculpture, design, architecture, fashion, photography. At the National Gallery of Victoria Triennial exhibition 2020 in Melbourne, each artist expresses their vision of the world in different creative ways. The works also invite us to reflect on the future, on the possible evolution of man, how we could be and how we would like to be.
Tony Ellywood, Director of the National Gallery of Victoria, said: “Artists, designers and architects of the twenty-first century perform a vital role in giving form to our collective imagination, fears and aspirations. We are all living in a world in flux: there has never been a more important moment to celebrate human capability than now.”
