A month-long series of tunes, performances, eats and drinks, to complement the blockbuster NGV Triennial exhibition.
The National Gallery of Victoria has your summer art fix sorted, showcasing works from over 100 artists as part of its ambitious NGV Triennial exhibition. And now the fun is set to continue after hours, too, with the ultimate supporting act — a month-long series of tunes, performances, eats and drinks, dubbed Triennial Extra.
Taking over the NGV International precinct nightly from Friday, January 15–Sunday, February 14, this free festival will be making the most of those balmy summer evenings to come. As well as late-night access to the NGV Triennial from 5-9pm, visitors can tuck into an exclusive menu of modern Indian eats, with a pop-up restaurant from Adam D'Sylva's acclaimed Tonka descending on the NGV's Garden Restaurant. Elsewhere, you'll find pop-up bars from the likes of Asahi and Yering Station, and bespoke Triennial-inspired pastries from the famed Lune Croissanterie.
Meanwhile, Melbourne Music Week has jumped on board to help curate a lineup of DJ sets, gracing the Triennial Summer Stage in the fairy-lit Grollo Equiset Garden each night. Across the month, you'll catch sounds from the likes of Andee Frost, Pjenné, Sui Zhen, Claire Knight, IN2STELLAR, Edd Fisher and many more.
And that's just a taste of what's on offer, with the full Triennial Extra program dropping on Monday, January 11.
