In an everchanging world presented with many challenges, how can art and design influence change and contribute to a positive future? We Change the World is an exhibition for all ages that shares the many different ways that artists and designers can provoke change through their work, positioning the idea of change as a creative gesture, large or small, that prompts us to question our current world and contribute to an optimistic future.

We Change the World shares the work of prominent contemporary Australian and international artists and designers drawn from the NGV Collection, including works new to the Collection and on display for the first time. It considers issues such as the climate emergency, entrenched inequalities and humanitarian injustices, while also foregrounding the importance of identity, culture and expression to the wellbeing of communities and individuals.

Featuring artists Richard Bell, Hannah Brontë, Maree Clarke, Destiny Deacon, Marlene Gilson, Vernon Ah Kee, and more.
