21 June 2022 - 21 August 2022 | 5 min read | venue: The Ian Potter Centre | cost: Free | website: https://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/exhibition/who-are-you/ | address: Russell St Melbourne 3000

Who Are You: Australian Portraiture is the first exhibition to comprehensively bring together the rich portrait holdings of both the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, and the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra. Revealing the artistic synergies and contrasts between the two institutions' collections, this co-curated exhibition considers portraiture in Australia across time and media.

Through the examination of diverse and sometimes unconventional ways of representing likeness, Who Are You: Australian Portraiture questions what actually constitutes portraiture - historically, today and into the future.

Who Are You: Australian Portraiture is the largest exhibition of Australian portraiture ever mounted by either the NGV or National Portrait Gallery, and is the first time the two galleries have worked collaboratively on such a large-scale project.
