Sydney nights in summer are unbeatable: balmy weather, rooftop bars abuzz, late night art adventures aplenty. The MCA's late-night program is your go-to inner-city art adventure in Sydney, with this summer's program brimming with activity after hours for Lights On Later.

Every Thursday evening until 9pm, enjoy late-night access to Grayson Perry: My Pretty Little Art Career and other MCA exhibitions. Discover and design your alter ego in a hands-on workshop, listen to MCA curators and guides, rediscover Australian New Wave Cinema, join a Subversive Tour of the exhibition led by a cast of diverse and eclectic guests.

Then wind down over a glass of wine, a bite to eat and live music on the MCA's Sculpture Terrace. Downstairs you can kick back among garden greenery and British pomp in the pop-up Gin Garden, or go all out with seafood bouillabaisse and Bombe Alaska at Graze MCA — open for dinner Thursday to Saturday in January.
