NGV is opening an 11-metre pool tomorrow as part of its next exhibit

Take a dip.

NGV just keeps on delivering. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the launch of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture but it turns out we may just have to make a trip to the gallery before then.

Kicking off tomorrow, its new exhibit centres around a functioning 11-metre pool. Aptly titled The Pool, it will be entirely interactive.

Representing the connection between landscape, culture and architecture, the free installation invites visitors to ‘take a dip’. As a a multi-sensory experience, it will feature audio content paying alongside the pool’s eight lanes.

Each lane will tell the story of well-known Australians, including Paul Kelly, Ian Thorpe, Romance Was Born and Tim Flannery.

Surrounding the pool, wooden decking and beach chairs will provide a place for visitors to reflect on the cultural exchange that takes place around the water.
