Friday Nights at NGV with Kira Puru
DATE: Friday 2 August, 6pm-10pm
LOCATION: #NGV International | 180 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne VIC 3006
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.
Performer, photographer, visual artist, DJ and vocal powerhouse Kira Puru continues to prove herself as a force to be reckoned with. Recognised for her dynamic live performances and genre-defying writing style, the recent single Molotov charted in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2018, and was released as part of her debut self-titled EP which also features breakthrough single Tension.
