Take this opportunity to enjoy a private viewing exclusive to VRC Members of one of the most exciting and anticipated exhibitions at the NGV – Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse as we celebrate the technical skills and exquisite talent of one of the most iconic fashion designers in recent memory.

Alexander McQueen (1969–2010) remains one of the most extraordinary and significant fashion designers in recent memory, lauded for his conceptual and technical virtuosity. Organised by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, (LACMA), in partnership with the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse is the first major Australian exhibition to explore McQueen’s thought-provoking and singular viewpoint.

Showcasing over 100 garments and accessories alongside more than 70 artworks, including painting, sculpture, photography, works on paper and decorative arts, from a multitude of eras and cultures, this exhibition offers unprecedented insight into McQueen’s far-reaching sources of inspiration, his creative process, and his capacity for storytelling.

The evening will commence with a cocktail party which includes canapes, beverages, entertainment, NGV guest speaker and a chance to win some fabulous door prizes. This exclusive event will culminate in a private viewing of the exhibition.

SOLD OUT.  To join the waitlist, please contact VRC Membership on  1300 727 575.
