Remain showing at the National Gallery of Victoria as part of WE CHANGE THE WORLD exhibition


In an everchanging world presented with many challenges, how can art and design influence change and contribute to

a positive future? We Change the World is an exhibition for all ages that shares the many different ways that artists and designers can provoke change through their work, positioning the idea of change as a creative gesture, large or small, that prompts us to question our current world and contribute to an optimistic future.

We Change the World shares the work of prominent contemporary Australian and international artists and designers drawn from the NGV Collection, including works new to the Collection and on display for the first time. It considers issues such as the climate emergency, entrenched inequalities and humanitarian injustices, while also foregrounding the importance of identity, culture and expression to the wellbeing of communities and individuals.

Featuring interactive activities and digital resources that invite audiences to directly engage with the themes of the exhibition, We Change the World challenges us all to consider our own potential for change, empowering not only young people but those of all ages to be creative, to celebrate uniqueness, and to speak up or think differently. With themes spanning environment and place, activism and protest, celebrating the everyday, and shaping the future, the exhibition also includes online learning resources for schools addressing multiple learning areas, capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities, as well as adult learning, events and digital content.
