The National Gallery of Victoria Summer Art Party was one of the best nights I have had in a long time. A night of fashion, art, and dancing with friends- it was perfect.
Three of my friends, Jess, Anastasia, and Dimitra, and I took the train up to the city around midday. We originally had planned to walk around China town and take some photos, but we decided it was too hot, so we walked around some shops and the art gallery instead, lol.
I loved loved loved the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition; in my opinion he's a genius. The designs are so unusual and interesting. I could spend all day wondering around the exhibition!
The other exhibition was by David Shrigley. His style of art is unique, and I really like it. It's a cartoon/comic style, and guaranteed to be a good laugh.
There was a large wall covered in hundreds of his drawings, and it was so fun walking along trying to look at all of the drawings, but there was too many!
We walked into a small room that had a door in the wall. The door had a brick pattern and the words 'to be kept shut' on it. Of course we simply had to go through the door and see what was on the other side. As we rounded the corner, we found ourselves in an art class! There was a large sculpture of a man in the middle, and people sitting in chairs around the sculpture, drawing it. The walls were covered from ceiling to floor in drawings that other people had done of it. It was interesting, because everyone drew it so differently. There was colourful drawings, ones in black and white, ones of just the face, the back of the sculpture, the front. Everyone sees things differently, and this room reflected it. I liked that.
I had a really good time last night, and I sincerely hope there is another Art Party next year. Thank you to the National Gallery of Victoria- it was brilliant.
