Many of us have been waiting patiently for Doug Aitken's first exhibition in the southern hemisphere — and finally his boundary-pushing work is open at the MCA. And, to celebrate the museum's 30th birthday, the Museum's major partner Telstra is helping you see this highly-anticipated and immersive exhibition — as well as its other incredible permanent exhibits — for free.
On Thursday, November 11, the MCA is inviting you to celebrate three decades of damn good work with free art, delicious drinks and more at this cultural institution's 30th birthday bash. The event will kick off at 10am with a Welcome to Country from Gadigal Elder and MCA Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Group Member Uncle Ray Davison, followed by a performance from the renowned Koomurri Aboriginal Dance Troupe.
Mini art lovers can get involved in the birthday celebrations by joining the art play session on the lawn featuring interactive toys, loads of art making supplies and inspiring books. Every good party needs delicious refreshments so the MCA cafe will be serving up tasty treats courtesy of Fresh Collective, including free cupcakes (limited stock), as well as refreshing birthday bellinis for $6 until the celebrations wind down at 9pm.
Want to help celebrate 30 years of incredible art at the MCA? Visit the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia on Thursday, November 11 to join in the birthday fun. For more information and to book, visit the website.
