Melbourne Winter Masterpieces blockbuster , huge drawcard for Victoria

Published on : Friday, May 24, 2019

Stunning ancient Chinese treasures will be shown at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) alongside thought-provoking contemporary Chinese art in the latest Melbourne Winter Masterpieces blockbuster.

 

The exhibitions that are at the centre of the gallery’s headline winter program ─ Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality and Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape.

 

“Exhibitions like these are huge drawcards for Melbourne and Victoria, adding an enviable calendar of major events that contribute $1.8 billion to the Victorian visitor economy and support thousands of local jobs,” Minister for Tourism and Major Events Martin Pakula said.

 

The Melbourne Winter Masterpieces presentation of Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality and Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape will be on display from 24 May to 13 October at NGV International.

 

The Terracotta Army is considered one of the wonders of the ancient world. The warriors were created to guard the mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shihuang, entombed in 210BCE, and discovered by accident only in 1974.

 

This is the 15th year of the Winter Masterpieces series, which sources the world’s best art and brings it exclusively to Melbourne each year to create drawcard exhibitions.

 

“These incredible exhibitions once again show why the NGV is Australia’s most popular gallery and the place to see the world’s best art,” Minister for Creative Industries Martin Foley said..

 

More than 6 million people have attended a Winter Masterpieces exhibition, with ticket pre-sales for Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality and Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape setting new highs.

 

The exhibitions will be presented alongside a program of public events that include free activities for families and the popular NGV Fridays featuring late-night music and food.
