api tracker

1966 was the year that Australia sent a Task Force to Vietnam, the year the first National Servicemen served in the war and the year of the battle of Long Tan. Australia felt the heat of the Cold War and the throes of a youth revolution, in the year the first baby boomers came of age. Fifty years on, this exhibition tells the story of a year that changed Australia and the world. 1966, the year that changed the world is one of three temporary exhibitions in the Galleries of Remembrance, located in the undercroft beneath the Shrine of Remembrance, Victoria’s largest and most visited war memorial of National Significance. The Galleries feature over 800 objects, photographs, uniforms and works of art illustrating the experiences of Australians at war and in peacekeeping operations, from the 1850's to the present day.

2016 Architecture Commission: M@ STUDIO Architects

  • Date: 14 October 2016 - 02 April 2017
  • Venue: 180 St Kilda Road

A playful reinvention of the suburban car wash is the concept behind the 2016 NGV Architecture Commission built in the NGV’s Grollo Equiset Garden this spring. Designed by Melbourne-based M@ STUDIO Architects, the ephemeral structure is titled Haven’t you always wanted to run through all that foam at the car lovers? With dimensions taken directly from an existing car wash in Blackburn, the design transplants an object of everyday use and familiarity into the unfamiliar surroundings of an art gallery. In place of cement and fluorescent lighting, the structure has a lightweight steel body with walls made of layered cricket netting and a translucent poly-carbonate roof. The evocative structure includes live ‘bays’ with lanes of bright pink astro turf complete with rubberised humps and road markings. Topped by a glittering ‘car wash’ sign and illuminated at night, the spaces are used for events, talks, live music performances and more over spring and summer as well as providing a place for Melbournians to gather, play and daydream. The whimsical structure will also include two bays replete with hanging curtains of red plastic, while another will diffuse mist recreating the experience of being at the car wash.
