OVER TEN SUMMER NIGHTS, MELBOURNE’S LARGEST PRESENTATION OF CONTEMPORARY ART AND DESIGN SETS THE SCENE FOR A PARTY NOT TO BE MISSED.
Surrounding new, exciting and thought-provoking work by over 100 artists and designers from 32 countries, Triennial EXTRA brings together a ten-night festival of dance performance, guest DJs, pop-up bars, architecture, food and conversation.
FOOD & BARS
PRESENTED BY ANDREW McCONNELL
Experience the evocative smells, contemporary tastes and playful surrounds of Supernormal Natsu (Japanese for ‘summer’) as award-winning Melbourne chef and restaurateur Andrew McConnell (Cumulus Inc., Cutler & Co, Supernormal) resides at NGV’s Garden Restaurant for a good time (not a long time) during Triennial EXTRA. In a nod to Supernormal’s pan-Asian roots, the menu will celebrate the abundant produce of the season presented through a collection of new and exciting dishes exclusive to Natsu.
