Colour Fields Pop-Up Bar

The MCA's summer pop-up bar is a rainbow-coloured sanctuary inspired by Pipilotti Rist.

We all know it's never too early to start planning your summer – especially the bits that involve scouting out new drinking destinations and loading up on art and culture.

Handy then, that the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia will again combine two of Sydney's favourite past-times for its third annual exhibition-themed summer pop-up bar, opening the doors to Colour Fields on November 3.

As the name suggests, this year's project is set to inject the MCA's harbourside terrace with a healthy dose of colour, inspired by Pipilotti Rist's bold Sydney International Art Series exhibition Sip My Ocean, which is in town from November 1 until February 18.

Not only will the rainbow-hued bar offer modernised classic cocktails and summery share plates to echo Rist's bold installations, but the team from Work-Shop will be hosting a series of Wednesday night classes on topics like DIY perfume-making and rosé appreciation – perfect for when that art gazing leaves you itching to unleash some creativity of your own.

And, as the icing on the cake, local record label Future Classic has again jumped on board to serve up some awesome aural treats. Colour Fields will feature their handpicked mixtapes throughout the week, while weekly Sunday sessions will see the likes of Andy Garvey, Le Fruit, Freda & Jackson and Moving House DJs gracing the decks.
