National Gallery of Victoria

In 2017 the NGV is partnering with the ARC Centre for the History of Emotions to produce a major exhibition of artwork.

The National Gallery of Victoria is one of the nation's major galleries, possessing over 65,000 artworks that span thousands of years. A substantial number of the works represented in the gallery cover the research period of the ARC Centre for the History of Emotions (CHE), namely, Europe from 1100 to 1800.

In 2017 the NGV is partnering with CHE to produce a major exhibition of artworks from this study period to explore how individual and communal emotions were depicted and how these impact on contemporary audiences.  The exhibition Love: Art of Emotion 1400–1800 will run from Friday 31 March to Sunday 18 June 2017.

Further information will be made available as this project progresses.
