Civilization: The Way We Live Now

By Lynette C December 10, 2019

Civilization: The Way We Live Now is now showing at NGV Australia, Federation Square.

Discover photography from over one hundred photographers from Africa, the Americas, Australia and Europe in an exhibition that creates a picture of collective life around the world and its complexities in the twenty-first century.

In this increasingly globalised world, the exhibition explores photographers’ representations of life in cities as its key theme and presents a journey through the shared aspects of life in the urban environment. The selected works create a picture of collective life around the world and document patterns of mass behaviour. The exhibition reflects on the ways in which photographers have documented and held a mirror up to the world around us
