If you're anything like us, you're probably hard at work making a list of what to see at Vivid 2019. A word of advice, though: keep Wednesday nights free. Why? Because each hump day throughout the duration of the festival, the Art Gallery of New South Wales will keep its doors open late for a free evening of music, discussion and art.

The first Art After Hours, on the evening of May 29, will explore spirituality and inner life in a conversation between Meshel Laurie and Benjamin Law before a musical tribute to the films of Spike Lee (a Vivid Ideas speaker this year). Week two will feature a talk from poet-rapper Omar Musa and artist Abdul Abdullah on expressing culture and identity in Australia, along with a striking performance from Okenyo, while week three will go back to the moon landing by reimagining songs from the cassette played during the moon landing.

There'll be heaps to do each night, with free mindfulness sessions, drawing workshop and artist-led talks. They're also a good opportunity to catch the gallery's current exhibitions: The Archibald Prize, Duchamp and The National.
