Civilization: The Way We Live Now

13 Sep 2019 - 2 Feb 2020

 

NGV Australia, Federation Square
Open 10am–5pm daily
This exhibition is ticketed. 

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 has been produced by Thames & Hudson in parallel with the exhibition.

Civilization: The Way We Live Now is curated by William A. Ewing and Holly Roussell, assisted by Juliette Hug. The exhibition is co-produced by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/New York/Paris/Lausanne and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, in consultation with the National Gallery of Victoria.
