Ground Level

Celebrate the last weekend of Andy Warhol | Ai Weiwei  on Saturday night at NGV.  Explore the exhibition, enjoy food and bars, plus a DJ set by Oscar Key Sung and a special live performance by celebrated Australian singer-songwriter Robert Forster. Doors open 6pm. Headline act from 8.30pm.


Seven years have past since Robert Forster, one of Australia’s most respected singer-songwriters and co-founder of the Go-Betweens, released what was widely regarded as his best solo album, The Evangelist (2008). This time has been well spent, writing songs and gathering musicians, and forging the next chapter of Forster’s extraordinary musical life. The result is a new album, Songs To Play, bringing a bolder and wilder approach to sound and a set of truly inspiring compositions. NGV are proud to celebrate the final event of the Friday Night at NGV program with a phenomenal night with Robert Forster, performing songs from this new album, with a troop of young musicians: Scott Bromley and Luke McDonald (from The John Steel Singers), Chris O’Neil on drums, along with violinist and singer Karin Baumler.
