Melbourne to join the triennial club

Buoyed by the success of Melbourne Now, a large exhibition showcasing work by Melbourne artists (the show has attracted 750,000 visits since it opened in November 2013), National Gallery of Victoria director Tony Ellwood has announced plans to launch a triennial in 2017. And with an eye to collection building from triennial, he will also roll out a new fund dedicated to commissioning and acquiring contemporary art for the NGV collection.
