There's something secretive and special about slipping into an art gallery after hours. Add a few laughs and a glass of wine, and it's pretty difficult to imagine a more seductive reason to get out of your house for the night.

Running over Wednesday, July 11 and Wednesday, July 18, the Art Gallery of New South Wales' is hosting a series of late-night events as part of NAIDOC Week — a week-long celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and achievements.

The highlight of the two nights, kicking off at 6.30 both weeks, is Faboriginal, an art game show run by Aboriginal writer and comedian Steven Oliver. Two teams will battle it out on topics relating to the gallery's Indigenous Australian art collection. Brush up on your trivia, as the crowd will be called out to help when the teams get stumped.

A series of talks relating to NAIDOC Week's 2018 theme, 'Because of her, we can!' will also run across the two nights. The discussion will feature three prominent female Aboriginal artists, Juliette Seymour, Samantha Rich and Emily McDaniel.

The late-night events are only one part of the AGNSW's NAIDOC Week celebrations, to see the full lineup, head to the website.
