NGV Friday Nights: Alexander McQueen

NGV Friday Nights: Alexander McQueen

16 DEC–14 APR | 6–10PM

Start your weekend with a visit to NGV Friday Nights and the groundbreaking exhibition, Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse. NGV’s Great Hall and garden are transformed with live-music and pop-up bars inspired by ‘90s London and the innovation, romance and theatricality of McQueen’s work. See Melbourne’s best DJs take residence in the 2022 Architecture Commission: Temple of Boom as well as a line-up of unmissable bands performing in the Great Hall, alongside rare screenings of some of McQueen’s most iconic runway collections. Music sounds better on a Friday night.



Fri 3 Feb, 17 Mar & 14 Apr only

Gather in the Temple of Boom as the live construction of a rope bondage gown unfolds. Designed and handcrafted by performance artist Luke George (he/they) in collaboration with a model muse for each performance (Mark Binette, Timothy Stone and Emil Cañita), the garment of vibrantly colourful and intricately knotted ropes fuses kink with couture. Provoked by Alexander McQueen’s radical and lasting impact on fashion and culture, see these special performances during NGV Friday Nights only on Friday 3 Feb, 17 Mar and 14 Apr.
