Since the ambitious NGV Triennial opened just before Christmas, the National Gallery of Victoria has been absolutely buzzing. And it's set to take this vibe to the next level with Triennial EXTRA, a one-off festival that will see the gallery open late for ten days this January.
The NGV will turn things up a notch and and remain open from 6pm till midnight run every day between January 19 and 28. Like the exhibition the festival is free to attend, and its program covers immersive and experiential events across art, music, dance, live performance, design and ideas. You can grab a drink and take a tour led by dance company Chunky Move, attend a talk of the intersection of gender and race in art or dance along to one of the DJs-in-residence.
Chef Andrew McConnell will also take over the gallery's Garden Restaurant for the ten days and transform it into Supernormal Natsu, a spin-off of his modern Japanese restaurant in Flinders Lane.
