The Museum of Contemporary Art's Artbar has become a firm fixture on Sydney's after-dark cultural calendar. For the uninitiated, Artbar combines art, music, design and performance for a huge adults-only art party on the last Friday of every month, curated by a different artist each time. This month, the event will be held a week early, and comes under the direction of Melbourne-based artist Kate Beynon.
Beynon draws on cultural identities — including her own upbringing in Hong Kong and the UK — to tell stories through paintings and soft sculptures. For Artbar, Beynon has chosen the theme of 'mixture' to run the proceedings, curating a night that explores multiculturalism and hybridity through fantastical installations, performances and, of course, a dance party on the MCA rooftop.
Your ARTBAR ticket also includes free entry to Pipilotti Rist's Sip My Ocean.
