NGV Audience Survey on the exhibition 'Love: Art of Emotion 1400‒1800'

Amanda Krause is tracking audience responses to the exhibition 'Love: Art of Emotion 1400‒1800' at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) via a short online survey. The survey can be completed without visiting the NGV as it asks respondents about visiting art galleries in general, about themselves, and to respond to eight key works that are part of the exhibition. The survey can be accessed here.
