The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) is in preparation to open the world premiere exhibition, Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists.
Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists at NGV opens October 2016
The exhibition, opening 21 October 2016, celebrates the works of Dutch fashion designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren from avant-garde fashion house Viktor&Rolf.
Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists at NGV
Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists, which follows in the footsteps of NGV's blockbuster exhibition The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier, will feature some of the iconic show-stoppers by the Dutch design duo. Over 35 haute couture pieces will be on display, plus a selection of the designer's earlier works, and newest work-in-progress; 'Dolls'; replicas of antique dolls dressed in the designers' most iconic looks.
Part of Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists sees the children's gallery, NGV Kids, convert into Atelier: Viktor&Rolf for Kids. The Dutch fashion duo are preparing an interactive installation, designed for children and families to explore the vision of Viktor&Rolf. Expect hands-on, tactile art and multimedia for your children to explore. Although there is a charge to see Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists, entry into Atelier: Viktor&Rolf for Kids is free.
Viktor&Rolf in Conversation: Ticketed Event
To celebrate the opening of the world premiere exhibition, Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists, Dutch designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren from avant-garde fashion house Viktor&Rolf, will appear in conversation with international guest curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot in a major NGV public event on Friday 21 October, 6.30pm at NGV International.
What can you expect from the night? Viktor&Rolf will discuss their career, which, since forming their creative partnership in 1992, has carved an identity of 'wearable art', blending art and fashion, minimalism and opulence, romance and excess, exuberance and control, classicism and conceptualism. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to tap into the creative minds of the inventive fashion duo. Don't miss out.
Tickets are available to book from 29 September (NGV Members' exclusive presale available from 10am Wednesday 28 September) and start from $60, booked online.
