Special Event

– Fri 2 May, Fashion Edition

Hot on the heels of Australian Fashion Week comes the Fashion Edition of MCA ARTBAR driven by Audi on Fri 2 May. Been to Carriageworks lately? Romance Was Born and Rebecca Baumann’s Reflected Glory clearly demonstrates that art and fashion collaborations are this season’s must-have essential. Closer to home artist Nell worked with Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales to create these t-shirts for the Dead or Alive Halloween edition of ARTBAR in 2012.

For this ARTBAR you’ll be swooning as artists KK+JLD (Kailana Sommer and Jack Dunbar) collaborate with Melbourne’s Centre for Style to combine cutting-edge clothes, dance and installation. Be delighted as the Whitehouse Institute of Design pay homage to MCA Collection artworks by making garments in the Galleries. Follow the footsteps of many a model before and learn how to catwalk or simply enjoy the runway on the night. Be front row at a performance by Sydney drag favourite Dallas Dellaforce.

The finishing touches? Get a Metaverse Makeover with an augmented reality manicure (#nailart) and enjoy DJs Ariane Halls and The Original Roman on the Sculpture Terrace.
