Nicholas Mangan, Melbourne Now 2023

Nicholas Mangan has been commissioned to produce a new large-scale installation to be premiered at the NGV in the exhibition Melbourne Now. With the working title Core-Coralations, Mangan’s project incorporates both film and sculpture. It examines the material evidence of climate change’s effects on this vast organism, The Great Barrier Reef, and how this correlates with human activity in a warming world.

Core-Coralations is supported by the Blue Assembly program at the University of Queensland Art Museum; Ian Potter Moving Image Commission; Copyright Agency; and Australia Council.

Congratulations Nicholas on this significant achievement.
