What is this project about?

An investigation of how people have experienced the NGV exhibition, 'Love: Art of Emotions 1400-1800.’

What does participation involve?

There were two ways people could participate:

  1. People who visited the NGV exhibition in person were asked to complete a questionnaire, to answer questions about themselves and about their experience of the exhibition.
  2. People who were unable to visit the exhibition in person were able to complete an online questionnaire. The survey asks respondents about visiting art galleries in general, about themselves, and to respond to eight key works that were part of the exhibition
