National Gallery of Victoria are staging a new music, art & conversation series at NGV Aust this winter.
Join emerging & established artists including Missy, Paul Dempsey, Bob Evans, Melody Pool & New Gods as they perform in the iconic Australian art spaces on Sundays from 6 Jul … all for free!
Curated by Jae Laffer, the series will showcase ten of Australia’s best loved songwriters over ten weeks, set amongst classic Australian works in the NGV’s Ian Potter Centre. Each Sunday afternoon the public have the chance to hear about the background of a great Australian work of art, followed by a performance from an Australian musician who will play a handful of songs and also discuss some of the themes and inspirations for their songs. Discussion will focus on comparisons to each week’s selected visual work of art, and show the similarities between the two art forms.
