Get up close and personal with some of your favourite artists.

Seeing inside the homes and studios of creatives we admire is always fascinating. Luckily for everyone who’s homebound and itching for their art fix, the NGV has launched virtual in-studio visits with some of Australia’s most revered artists and designers.

All artists and designers included in the lineup have exhibited at the NGV or are in the NGV collection, and the lineup includes Sydney artist Agatha Gothe-Snape, furniture designer Mary Featherston AM, artist and curator Lisa Waup, musician and artist Jon Campbell, multi-disciplinary artist Darren Sylvester, Melbourne lighting designer Christopher Boots, and contemporary artist Yhonnie Scarce.

The series will run throughout May and June and will provide viewers with an insight into the artists’ lives and practices during isolation, as well as their artistic processes, current ideas and influences, and their perspectives on creating.

“The NGV is fortunate to be surrounded by an incredibly diverse local art and design community. This series gives our audience an opportunity to connect with these artists and designers and hear their perspectives about their practice during this period of isolation,” said Tony Ellwood AM, Director, National Gallery of Victoria.

You can catch the live in-studio visits via the NGV’s Instagram Live every Wednesday at 6pm or watch them on-demand via the NGV Channel at the NGV’s website.
