How ‘real’ are the images and display suites we see of new apartment developments? Jill Garner participated in the panel discussion 'Get Real Estate' on 19 December as part of the National Gallery of Victoria’s Triennial 2020.

The panel responded to the speculative architecture practice BTVV’s Walls for sale: near new and supersized, which is on exhibition at the Triennial. The satirical work presents a collage of the ‘worst practices’ of property development and manipulative scales of photography used to sell real estate. The panel discussed poor quality real estate, the promises being sold to people through advertising and the implications for architecture.

The panel discussion and exhibition offers a timely conversation starter on the future of housing design.       

Speakers included:

  • Ewan McEoin, National Gallery of Victoria
  • Amy Muir, MUIR Architecture
  • Michael Bleby, Australian Financial Review

You can view the 'Get Real Estate' conversation by scrolling to the 3 hours and 22 minute mark.

The NGV Triennial 2020 is on exhibition until 18 April 2021 and entry is free. For more information, please visit the NGV website
