Best of the Best 2016
Day Viewing

Fri 13 May 16, 10am–5pm
NGV International
Great Hall

In May 2016 the NGV Women’s Association is again staging Best of the Best – an exhibition set to lift the spirits and excite the imagination.

Best of the Best 2016 promises to take the art of table setting to a new dimension – from the whimsical to the avant garde, the tables will amuse, amaze and inspire.  Visitors will be able to view over 40 stunning and wildly diverse tables, conceived and created by some of Australia’s leading creative talents.  The NGVWA have been working tirelessly to bring together a stellar line up of exhibitors including interior designers, artists, florists, landscape artists, couturiers and retailers, along with major institutions The Australian Ballet and the NGV, who are all donating their rare and wonderful talents to help raise funds towards acquisitions for the NGV.

A spectacular display of tables decorated by some of Australia’s leading creatives:
