15 Jun 2018 to 5 Oct 2018
In a series of performances in partnership with the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, the NGV comes alive after dark with the eclectic sounds of jazz during this season of NGV Friday Nights. Headlining the event will be Brooklyn-based, contemporary jazz trumpeter Maurice Brown whose hip-hop/funk combo has seen him record with leading artists including Florence and the Machine, Wyclef Jean, Macy Gray and The Roots.
Curated to reflect a varied range of musical experiences, the program draws inspiration from the home of jazz, New York City, with rhythmic stylings including the Great American Songbook, neo-soul, gospel, jazz-blues, hip-hop and funk.
The late-night art and music series runs alongside the NGV’s Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition MoMA at NGV: 130 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art from 15 June to 5 October 2018 at NGV International.
