Between Two Worlds
Friday Nights at the National Gallery Victoria (NGV) are set for the summer months. Late night access to the new art exhibition, a great musical line-up with live music and DJs in the garden plus a choice of dining and bars - what better way to visit this well-known Melbourne icon?

Escher X nendo | Between Two Worlds is the new exhibition featuring the work of Dutch artist M. C. Escher presented within the work of acclaimed Japanese design studio nendo. The artist, Maurits Cornelis Escher is best known for his works featuring seemingly impossible geometry, optical illusions and tessellation. The NGV enlisted nendo to build the space within which to view Escher's work, the exhibition becomes an immersive space within which art is seen in a different and innovative way. The artworks need time to be absorbed and often reveal things, objects and directions that were missed on the first or even second viewing.

NGV Friday Nights give you an opportunity to view the works at a preferred time, have a bit to eat, listen to some music either before or after viewing the exhibition and then enjoy the rest of the evening. There is no need to rush through the gallery, you have time. Times for entry to the gallery can be booked for between 6 and 9 pm and bars and dining close at 10 pm.

Your Comment
The exhibition was a too crowded at the 6.15pm time slot to make the Escher exhibition really enjoyable for me.
