After shaking up dance floors all over Melbourne, Polly and the Pockets hit the NGV for a special 5 piece set like you’ve never seen before. Looking for groovy rhythms? Check. Quirky tones? Check. Toe-tapping-head-bopping goodness? Big check.

Louis McCoy possesses an audio résumé and reputation as a selector and curator that certainly precedes him. Over many years, Louis has etched out his own space in the collective memory of Melbourne’s dance community, becoming a mainstay of fine bounce and espousing the principles of groove and flavour. From warming up and opening for international luminaries to playing local and inter-state festivals, Louis has developed a distinct approach to DJing underpinned by his extraordinarily wide palate.


Melbourne Winter Masterpieces: The Picasso Century
The world-premiere Melbourne Winter Masterpieces® exhibition, The Picasso Century, charts the extraordinary career of Pablo Picasso in dialogue with the many artists, poets and intellectuals with whom he interacted throughout the 20th century, including Guillaume Apollinaire, Georges Braque, Salvador Dalí, Alberto Giacometti, Françoise Gilot, Valentine Hugo, Marie Laurencin, Dora Maar, André Masson, Henri Matisse, Dorothea Tanning and Gertrude Stein. Exclusively developed for the NGV by the Centre Pompidou and the Musée national Picasso-Paris, the exhibition features over 70 works by Picasso alongside over 100 works by more than 50 of his contemporaries, drawn from premier French national collections, as well as the NGV Collection.
