La Trobe’s partnership with the NGV

This is the fourth year La Trobe has partnered with the NGV in bringing inspirational exhibitions to the community and is the only University to provide their students access to an accredited art subject (Summer at NGV) conducted within the gallery’s exhibition spaces.

Living Landscapes – Where Art Meets The Environment:

During the evening you will have the opportunity to transform your artistic flair into a greener future for an iconic La Trobe University landmark. A La Trobe University initiative, inspired by David Hockney’s passion for landscapes and new technology, will see a virtual forest of hand drawn digital plants translated into a real-life forest, creating long-lasting benefits for the environment.

Under the initiative, Living Landscapes, visitors to the NGV’s Friday Nights program create their own personalised plant on an iPad using the colours and brush strokes inspired by David Hockney. They move their tablet over a virtual scale replica of the University’s 30-hectare Wildlife Sanctuary and digitally “plant” their creation amid an evolving forest of digital trees already created by other visitors on the night.

For each of the estimated 4000 virtual plants created during the initiative, La Trobe will plant one within the Sanctuary, which was set up 50 years ago to protect local flora and fauna.
