Art of Bloom
See iconic NGV artworks reimagined as stunning floral masterpieces, set to grace the gallery's Great Hall in one multi-sensory burst of blossoms.
March 29, 2023
A huge dose of flower power is set to descend on the NGV this autumn, as the sumptuous Art of Bloom transforms the gallery's Great Hall into a multi-sensory floral wonderland. Hosted by the NGVWA and featuring the work of more than 20 Aussie artists and creatives, this striking installation is set to bloom brightly from Wednesday, May 3–Friday, May 5.
Art of Bloom sees each artist create their own floral (or floral-inspired) masterpiece, reimagining artworks from the esteemed NGV Collection with petals in place of paintbrush strokes. Among them, you'll spy stunning sensory designs from the likes of Steven Gabriel Maccora, Acid Flwrs, xxflos, Paper Couture and Victoria Whitelaw, plus Flowers Vasette, Hiromi Tango and many more.
The installation will make its grand public debut at a gala cocktail party on May 3 (tickets are $295, available online), before the exhibition ($40) opens across three sessions over the following two days. As you can imagine, these living artworks will be here for a good time, not a long time.
