TODAY’S the day!The National Gallery of Australia is once again hosting a special summer bar to mark a special summer exhibition.
Opening at 5pm in the gallery’s iconic Sculpture Garden on the lake, The “Chandon Sculpture Bar” will run every Thursday evening throughout summer.
This year marking the exhibition “Gold and the Incas: Lost Worlds of Peru,” there will be Peruvian-inspired food and drinks (including the celebrated “Pisco Sour”) and the chance to enjoy music concocted by some of Canberra’s top DJs.
Yesterday, a staffer at the NGA told “CityNews” that the current exhibition was living up to its expectations as a summer blockbuster.
Described by NGA director Ron Radford as “groundbreaking,” it is the first Australian exhibition of Pre-Columbian Peruvian art from the Incan empire and its predecessors. Artworks made of gold, silver, turquoise, shell, textiles and ceramics are enticing summer visitors in a new and original exhibition experience.
“Chandon Sculpture Bar,” Thursday evenings from 5pm throughout summer.
“Gold and the Incas: Lost Worlds of Peru,” National Gallery of Australia only, until April 21. Bookings to ticketek.com.au or 132849.
