Warm up this winter at NGV Friday Nights and discover China’s ancient terracotta warriors alongside new works by one of the world’s most exciting contemporary artists, Cai Guo-Qiang. Dine at the Hutong Dumpling Bar, enjoy after-hours access to the exhibition and see some of Australia’s best bands and performers play live in NGV’s Great Hall.

Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality & Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape
Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality is a large-scale presentation of the Qin Emperor’s terracotta warriors, discovered in 1974 in China’s Shaanxi province and widely described as the eighth wonder of the world. Presented in parallel, Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape, sees the artist create new art works inspired by his home country’s culture and its enduring philosophical traditions.

6.30pm China Then and Now 
Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality
features over 150 treasures of Chinese art and design including one of the greatest archaeological finds of the twentieth century, the Qin Emperor’s terracotta warriors. Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape presents a new body of work inspired by the history, places and culture that served as the backdrop to the reign of China’s first emperor, and the creation of the terracotta warriors. Discover the story behind the discovery of the terracotta warriors in 1974 and Cai Guo-Qiang’s multidisciplinary practice with NGV curator Wayne Crothers/Annika Aitken.

7pm & 8.30pm I Know Leopard
This Sydney four-piece revel in glam, dreamy synth pop and the kind of playful, upbeat 70s soft rock made famous by ELO and 10CC, blended seamlessly with the new wave energy of Metronomy. With a sense of luxury, glamour and brains they find themselves gloriously out of step with much of today’s musical landscape, reflected in their recent debut album, Love Is A Landmine.
