Popular ‘Friday Nights with Jean Paul Gaultier’ will open this October at the National Gallery of Victoria.

During The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk exhibition, visitors can enjoy live performances and an after-hours look at the gallery.

A stellar line up of Australian and international performers will greet the stage every Friday night during the exhibition, allowing for a more social and entertaining experience.

An array of electric artists, solo performers and bands are featured in the line up, including The Bombay Royale, Kate Miller-Heidke, Saskwatch, Remi and Rat & Co.

Kicking off the Friday Night series will be JD Samson from USA on Friday, October 24.

The exhibition celebrates the outstanding French couture of Jean Paul Gaultier. The National Gallery of Victoria will be the only Australian venue for the exhibition. Mr Gaultier says he is thrilled to be returning to Australia.

“I am honoured and flattered that my exhibition will travel to Australia,” he said.

Innovative street artist Rone, from Melbourne’s Everfresh Studio, will be collaborating with a group of designers to create the entrance and some spaces inside the gallery.

The director of the National Gallery of Victoria, Tony Ellwood said Friday Nights would offer an enhanced experience of seeing Jean Paul Gaultier’s exhibition.

“Friday Nights provides a social setting for people to catch up with friends at the Gallery. Visitors can see the exhibition after-hours in a different setting, while also experiencing some of the most innovative live acts performing today,” Mr Ellwood said.

The Friday Night series will also provide food and dining experiences, as well as pop-up fashion talks in the heart of the gallery.

The exhibition will feature more than 140 of Jean Paul Gaultier’s garments, including pieces worn by Kylie Minogue, Beyonce, Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett. A collection of photographs, sketches, stage costumes, and excerpts fromrunway shows, film and concerts will be featured in the exhibition.
