Headlining on successive Friday nights the bands include electro quartet World’s End Press, the ARIA-nominated Big Scary, the ‘dreamy brilliance’ of Brighter Later and Grammy Award-nominated Hiatus Kaiyote.
“Following 2013’s sell-out Friday Night sessions, the series will return to the NGV with a home-grown focus to celebrate Melbourne Now, says Tony Ellwood, Director of NGV.
“The Melbourne Now gallery spaces across NGV International and The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia will be activated, matching the stellar line up in the Great Hall with special ‘pop-up’ talks and performances. Best of all, we are pleased to announce these Friday Night events will be completely free.”
Melbourne Now celebrates the latest art, architecture, design, performance and cultural practice to reflect the complex cultural landscape of creative Melbourne. Visitors can also enjoy after-hours access to Melbourne Now along with a range of food and drink offerings.
Melbourne Now is on display at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia and NGV International until 23 March 2014.
