Event Details

Civilization: The Way We Live Now at Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia

Exhibition opens 13 Sep 2019 and runs until 2 Feb 2020.

Civilization: The Way We Live Now is an international photography exhibition of monumental scale, featuring the work of over 100 contemporary photographers from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia and Europe with over 200 original photographs being exhibited.

In this increasingly globalised world, the exhibition explores photographers’ representations of life in cities as its key theme and presents a journey through the shared aspects of life in the urban environment. The selected works create a picture of collective life around the world and document patterns of mass behaviour. The exhibition looks at the phenomenal complexity of life in the twenty-first century and reflects on the ways in which photographers have documented, and held a mirror up, to the world around us.

A major publication is being produced by Thames & Hudson in parallel with the exhibition.

Open 10am-5pm daily.
