Style Melbourne

Happy Birthday NGV!

Everyone deserves a little makeover when they reach a milestone birthday. And that’s exactly what the National Gallery of Victoria has done as the grand lady turns a BIG 150 years old this year! The Frost* Design agency is responsible for a refreshed visual identity for the NGV, a look that is contemporary but won’t date quickly. You can see an example of Frost*’s design below, on the poster for the current NGV exhibition ManStyle (which as a Melbourne fashion aficionado you should already be familiar with).

Now, you can’t let a 150th birthday  go by without an epic celebration; so NGV is inviting all of Melbourne to a party weekend across Saturday 28th (when NGV will stay open until midnight) and Sunday 29th May.  The free festivities include live music from the likes of The Bamboos and Dan Sultan, roving performers, cabaret, plenty of talks and an art trail from NGV International to NGV Australia.

To think, I still remember marvelling at the waterfall wall at the entrance or my dad pointing out the stained glass ceiling on gallery visits as a child.
