Great Hall
7.30pm – 8.30pm

Proto Moro are a 4-piece Punk Funk outfit from Naarm. After a successful sold-out-year-long residency at Colour Club, they are ready to tear up any stage that appears before them. Proto Moro experiment with delving into the extended techniques of their instruments to create textures that are new and exciting for all types of listeners. They take influence from a mixture of genres such as funk, punk, techno, psychedelic rock, metal and spiritual jazz to create heavily smooth stylings that will leave you both bewildered and entranced. They have premiered on Worldwide FM and Stamp the Wax, and are recognised internationally as ‘Naarm’s innovators of Psychedelic Thrash Jazz’. Come join their exploration of the soul.

Millú has refined her skill as a selector with deeply considered sets that ride the energy of a room with vigour. A champion of Antipodean artistry, her collection is drenched with releases from local labels both old and new, trading in a commodity of heavy rhythms, big basslines, and tightly flowing mixing, Millú makes it impossible to leave the floor.  


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.
