Issue 9 of NGV Magazine presents the second of two special issues dedicated to NGV Triennial, focusing on NGV Triennial themes Time and Movement.

This March/April issue focuses on NGV Triennial themes Time and Movement, with writers exploring the nuanced ways these themes can be interpreted through the work of exhibiting artists.

Time begins with an edited transcript from The School of Life's Philosophy Salon, presented during Triennial EXTRA in January, which explored the concept of time through great thinkers of the world. Also on Time, essayist Monika Szewczyk explores the real and imagined settings of Polish artist Paulina Olowska's female muses; NGV curators Susan van Wyk and Kate Ryan consider the energetic fusion of time, place and culture in artist Hassan Hajjaj's Noss Noss; Yale Center for British Art's Glenn Adamson looks at the Japanese influences that resulted in nendo's Manga chairs (2015); and Intent Journal's Editor-in-Chief Sigrid McCarthy considers the role of couture in sustainable 'slow fashion'. 

For the theme of Movement, NGV Magazine introduces cover artist Yayoi Kusama, whose Flower obsession (2017), is a Triennial favourite; as well as texts on Formafantasma, Zanele Muholi, Ron Mueck, Riley Payne, We Make Carpets; and a MIMCO and NGV design store Triennial collaboration. 

This issue also introduces two new major exhibitions at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia: Colony: Australia 1770–1861 and Colony: Frontier Wars, which offer parallel perceptions of Australia's colonial period. 

Art. Ideas. Design. Creativity. With new writing, interviews, photography and features, NGV Magazine is about the people and stories behind great art and design. NGV Magazine celebrates creativity of all kinds through writing commissioned from around the worlds and a focus on unique and engaging content.
