The 2020 Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition Pierre Bonnard, developed in partnership with the Musée d’Orsay, Paris, features over 100 works by the celebrated French artist and brings modern France to life with startling beauty and vivid colour.
The NGV has commissioned award-winning Iranian Paris-based designer India Mahdavi to design the exhibition’s scenography. Engaging with both art history and contemporary culture, Mahdavi frames Pierre Bonnard’s works among wall and floor applications, as well as furniture, bringing to life the sumptuous, domestic interior worlds Bonnard became synonymous for.
Members are invited to an exclusive introduction to the exhibition by NGV curator Dr Miranda Wallace before the exhibition opens on 5 June, including an opportunity to view the exhibition model.
Includes a complimentary glass of wine on arrival and light refreshments.
This program does not include an exhibition viewing. Pierre Bonnard opens on Friday 5 June, with a Members Exhibition Preview on Thursday 4 June from 2–5pm and an after-hours viewing on Sunday 7 June from 5.30–8.30pm. Tickets for exclusive viewings can be purchased here.
