When Mercedes-Benz threw a preview party for the National Gallery of Victoria's newest exhibition, Melbourne Now, it was a hot ticket: the eclectic exhibition celebrates the latest art, design and architecture produced in Melbourne. You knew something was up as soon as you saw the igloo-shaped sculpture - made out of IKEA bins - at the entrance. It makes one proud to live in Melbourne, which really does feel like a hub of creativity.
