Art as Therapy

Philosophy meets art at the NGV

This collaboration between the the School of Life and the NGV will see renowned authors/philosophers Alain de Botton and John Armstrong offer their interpretations of artworks in the NGV. The curated program will offer visitors a chance to guide themselves through the NGV collection, exploring works with specially written labels. Each offers Botton and Armstrong's unique take that can help visitors deal with the problems of everyday life such as work, love, status, mortality and relationships.
