Throughout winter the NGV will host a series of music and conversations set amongst the classics of the 19th and 20th Century Australian art galleries. See some of the most iconic works by Australian artists – from Rupert Bunny to John Brack – in a different light as we explore shared themes between art and music and enjoy a short set of live and intimate performances in the gallery spaces.

Curated by Jae Laffer of The Panics, Unplugged Live: Portrait of an Artist will showcase ten of the country’s best emerging and established musicians and bands over ten weeks. On Sunday afternoons, Laffer and NGV curators will discuss themes and ideas in iconic Australian works, followed by a live and acoustic performance of a handful of songs by the musicians.

In the last performance of the series singer/songwriter Missy Higgins will take to the microphone. She has struck a profound chord with Australian music fans with her irresistible melodies, 'arrow through the heart' lyrics and a voice that clearly means it. Missy was thrust into the limelight after she won Triple J unearthed whilst she was still at high school. In 2005, Missy's acclaimed debut LP “The Sound Of White" spent 7 weeks at #1 and became the country's highest selling album of the year.

After taking a break from music, Missy returned to the studio in 2011 to record her third #1 album, “The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle’, which became the most acclaimed work of Missy’s extraordinary career. The breakup album with a difference, chronicling the much loved singer's estrangement - and eventual rapprochement - with music making, spent over 3 months in the top 10 after its mid-2012 release and became Missy's first release to make the Billboard Top 100 in America. Missy is currently working on a new album due for release later this year.

Also on the line-up in the coming weeks: Bob Evans (Sun 6 Jul), New Gods (Sun 13 Jul), MT Warning (Sun 20 Jul), Melody Pool (Sun 27 Jul), Adalita (Sun 3 Aug), Georgia Fair (Sun 10 Aug), Glenn Richards (Sun 17 Aug), Jae Laffer (Sun 24 Aug), Paul Dempsey (Sun 31 Aug) and Missy Higgins (Sun 7 Sep).
