Blockbuster survey of Victorian art and design returns a decade on

Melbourne Now 2023 will showcase new and exciting works by local artists and designers working across Victoria today.

A decade following its inaugural presentation, Melbourne Now is returning to the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia later this month. Featuring the work of over 200 Victoria-based artists, designers, studios and firms, this milestone exhibition will run from 24 March to 20 August 2023. 

When Melbourne Now first entered the scene in 2013, it had a singular goal – to celebrate the latest art, architecture, design, fashion and dance practices that were emerging from the city. It was, at the time, an unprecedented and groundbreaking survey of local contemporary art and design in Victoria.
