Elle Shimada ft. The Co-Dreamers
Great Hall
7.30pm – 8.30pm
嶋田会希–Elle Shimada is a violinist, producer, curator, DJ and multi-instrumentalist from Tokyo based in Melbourne. Fluidly fusing Tokyo’s futuristic underground scene, London and Detroit House, LA Hip Hop, Melbourne mellow-jazz and sacred spirit’s songs somewhere deep in the mountains, Shimada’s productions and live sets are a kinetic succession of dance beats and abstract compositions.

Billos + Klomp
Great Hall
6.00pm – 7.30pm
8.30pm – 10.00pm

Billos + Klomp comprises best friends and local dentists Bill Madytianos and James Barros-Murphy. Their approach to music and curation is to experiment with the obscure. As regular guests on Brunswick’s radio station ‘Kiss FM’, their performances have extended to local bars, cafes and online radio shows.


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.
