Have an after-hours adventure at the art gallery.

It feels like the winter season of Friday Nights at the NGV just ended, but, turns out, they're already gearing up for summer — and we couldn't be happier about it. Complementing their current exhibitions — which include Lee Mingwei's The Moving Garden, Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists and David Hockney: Current — the gallery is inviting visitors to enjoy another jam-packed late-night summer program complete with food, booze, talks and live performances.

The huge 18-week program will kick off on opening night of the Hockney exhibition this Friday, November 11 with Brisbane '90s favourites Custard. Other musical guests on the program include Julien Baker, El Guincho, Gold Class and Olympia before culminating with a performance by the one, the only Amanda Palmer.

In addition to the music lineup, other Friday night activities include talks, DJs in the NGV garden and drinks and snacks in the Great Hall. All in all, it should make for many top-notch Fridays at the gallery between now and March.
