Art After Dark

You’ve talked about with friends and on your tram ride in or out of town you keep reminding yourself I’ve got to go see that.

It’s pretty hard to find the time when you work for the man, and weekends are horrendeous.

If you didn’t know, NGV International’s latest blockbuster Melbourne Winter Masterpiece is Picasso: Love & War 1935-1945. From the Musee Picasso in Paris, 300 works explore Pablo’s relationship both artistic and personal with his lover and muse, Dora Maar.

One of those amazingly inspirational and creative pairings that commenced before the Spanish Civil War and outlasted WW2.

Thankfully NGV International have taken a page out of European and American galleries – who actually open at night at least once a week.

After the huge success of other programs, Art After Dark – see art in a different light, gives you and every other day worker, the chance to experience a little culture when the sun goes down – or alternatively yet ANOTHER opportunity to miss the show.

On each Wednesday night, until the 4th of October, the kids at NGV have arranged talks, live performances, music, demonstrations and Spanish-inspired foods and wine from 5-9pm.

In the final week from the 5th to the 7th of October, they’ll keep their doors open till midnight.

Adults entry fees are $20, Members & Concession $16 and as an added bonus, students get into the “art after dark” evening for $10.

How civilised.
