What’s going on: Rock up to the last Friday Night event for the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition in style! Enter the fashion world of JPG, and be immersed in music, pop-up talks, bars and dining. The main act is Chicks on Speed who work across electronic pop music, performance, installation and new media art. They’ve been around for more than a decade, so they know a thing or two about delivering an entertaining set. Also playing on the night (5:30pm to 8:30pm to be exact), is Andee Frost a Melburnian DJ who apparently puts on a pretty sweet show. So to summarise should be a crazy cool night at the NGV.
