MCA x Vivid Up Late — POSTPONED
Party at the MCA after dark — and catch epic Vivid views, too.
UPDATE: Wednesday, July 14 2021 — In light of Greater Sydney's current COVID-19 situation, Vivid Sydney has been postponed till Friday, September 17–Saturday, October 9. Further details are yet to be announced, but we'll be sure to keep you updated. For more information, visit the event's website. For more information about the status of COVID-19 in NSW, head to the NSW Health website.
As part of Vivid Sydney's Up Late Series, the Museum of Contemporary Art will host special events every Friday night for the duration of the festival. Not only is the Terrace the perfect vantage point to catch all the twinkling light projections, but you can party at the Museum after dark every Friday, with three special nights lined up.
On August 13, MCA x Vivid Up Late: Transcend will celebrate gender diversity and fluid expressions of identity. The evening will fuse together conversation, music, dance, theatre and fashion. Then on August 20, MCA x Vivid Up Late: Love, Sex and Consent aims to redefine the language of love, encourage body positivity and recognise nontraditional relationships with a night of talks, workshops and performances. Rounding out the three-part series, MCA x Vivid Up Late: The Dinner Party will be hosted by First Nations artist and activist Richard Bell. Inspired by Bell's film The Dinner Party (2013), the event will (somewhat playfully) unpack race relations in Australia and present an Aboriginal-led future.
