In an international exclusive, the NGV presents a major exhibition of more than 100 masterworks of French Impressionism in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), an institution renowned world-wide for its rich holdings of Impressionist paintings. Part of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition series, French Impressionism features works by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Mary Cassatt and more – including 79 that have never-before-been exhibited in Australia.

Eternal Crush

Melbourne band Eternal Crush were formed by ethereal vocalist Joey Jean and guitarist/producer Jackson Holliday. The duo made a splash with their debut EP Heavenly Body which they co-produced with Gab Strum (Japanese Wallpaper). Strum’s extensive knowledge of synthesisers and drum machines complimented the duo’s sound to deliver a body of work that brings back memories of the Drive soundtrack and Twin Peaks. Since then, Eternal Crush have sold out a headline show and supported the likes of Miami Horror and Client Liaison. Eternal Crush are currently working on their second EP which will be released later this year.
