NGV’s current exhibition, NGV Triennial, celebrates contemporary art and design practice and features the work of over 100 artists and designers from 32 countries. It’s timely that on National Indexing Day the exhibition also includes an “index installation” – a feature wall that displays an enlarged extract from the index to the NGV Triennialpublication. Visitors can enjoy the installation and peruse copies of the publication scattered on the seating around it. The index was compiled by NGV Publications staff.
