Melbourne Now, closed.

One of the National Gallery of Victoria’s (NGV) most talked about and heavily promoted programs, ‘Melbourne Now’, has come to an end.

After four months and 600 events, NGV claimed the program attracted over 753,000 visitors.

That number represents a 32 per cent growth on the same time period last year, leading Director of the NGV Tony Ellwood to declare the program a great success.

“Melbourne Now has been transformative, both for the organization and we hope for our audiences and the artists involved,” Mr Ellwood said.

“Working with over 400 artists, 30 curators and over 70 donors and organisations to bring this project to life has rewarded us in more ways than we could have imagined,” he added.

Minister for the Arts, Heidi Victoria, said Melbourne Now had brought the arts and design community of Melbourne together.

“Melbourne Now has been a unique showcase for the enormous creative talent that exists here,” Ms Victoria said.

Ms Victoria congratulated NGV on attracting so many guests and said she was delighted: “Arts Victoria has played a significant part in helping to fund this extraordinary exhibition.”
