The Museum of Contemporary Art remains the place to be on the last Friday of the month when MCA ARTBAR takes over the gallery with an adults-only party of art, music, design and performance. Each month is curated by a different artist, making the series an ever-changing yet constant facet in Sydney's after-dark culture.

This month, on Friday, August 30, step into a world of pagan mystery, hypnotic movement and mesmerising music at MCA ARTBAR: Oracle. This adults-only party, which takes over the entire museum, is inspired by the Oracle of Delphi — a priestess of Ancient Greece — who breathed vapours, spoke in tongues and imparted fierce female wisdom.

MCA ARTBAR: Oracle has been curated by experimental artists Willoh S Weiland and J R Brennan. They're the duo currently co-directing the after-dark program for next year's MONA FOMA and have created works across the globe, including in Germany, Finland and Poland. So, you can expect lots of immersive and unexpected performance art and music at this month's after-hours art party.

Program highlights include an improvised dancing by ex-Bangarra dancer Yolande Brown to the tunes of Ptwiggs; fast-paced life drawing sessions; and the Polyphony Choir singing David Bowie, Björk, Kate Bush and Daft Punk in ways you've never heard before. Head to the rooftop bar and you'll find Stelly G hyping up the crowd. Then, DJ Yung Brujo will be powering the dance floor, backdropped by incredible views of the harbour, too.

It all goes down on Friday, August 30 between 7–11pm. Tickets can be pre-purchased for $18–24 online or at the door for $28.
