Alexander McQueen: the exhibition in Melbourne at the National Gallery of Victoria

NGV Alexander McQueen announcement 1

Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Musethe spectacular drama of Alexander McQueen’s design genius and the late ‘90s London scene inspires the musical line-up and design of this season’s NGV Friday Nights

From 16 December, Melbourne’s favourite and famous gallery, the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) will host its renowned Friday Nights sessions, opening up the gallery in a more accessible and entertaining way for guests from all over than ever before.

This year, the 18-week live music series will feature some of Melbourne’s most creative musical minds spanning disco, glam rock, punk, jazz, and soul.

Nai Palm’s magnetic neo-soul sound will fill the NGV’s Great Hall on opening night, with further highlights throughout the series including Electric Fields, Kee’ahn, Banoffee and Billy Davis. 

And if that’s not enough and you’re really hankering for a visit to the McQueen exhibition, then NGV Friday Nights offers late-night access to Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse, the first major Australian exhibition to explore the work of Alexander McQueen (1969 – 2010).

The exhibition, organised by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), in partnership with the NGV, will showcase 60 garments and accessories drawn from LACMA’s holdings of important works by McQueen alongside more than 50 designs by McQueen from the NGV Collection, making this Australian-exclusive presentation especially rich and comprehensive.
