CIVILIZATION: THE WAY WE LIVE NOW / NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA / MELBOURNE

Exhibition in THE IAN POTTER CENTRE: NGV AUSTRALIA CORNER FLINDERS AND RUSSELL STREET
FEDERATION SQUARE, MELBOURNE from 13 SEP 2019 – 2 FEB 2020 

Civilization: The Way We Live Now presents nearly 300 works by more than 130 of the world’s most renowned photographic artists, offering a complex and sprawling vision of contemporary life. The images gathered here, produced in the past 25 years, speak to the changes brought about by globalization, and draw attention both to the increasing amount of complexity and conflict, and to the unprecedented degree of interdependence, that characterize life today. They attest, as well, to the development of the medium of photography, and its ability to document these sweeping changes.

Curated by William A. Ewing and Holly Roussell.
