ARTBAR
– Primavera Edition #1, Fri 29 Aug

Curated by Nick Dorey and Hossein Ghaemi

Spring comes early in the form of 90s rave at the next MCA ARTBAR. Primavera 2014 artists Nick Dorey and Hossein Ghaemi orchestrate a night of video works, performance, workshops and a dedicated rave space. Continue the fun from last month’s Cat Café.

Travel back to Sydney’s warehouse party peak with DJ’s Future of Blame and Del Lumanta. Big Box Little Box your way past video works by Robin Hungerford, Tim Barretto and Justin Balmain and do the sprinkler alongside performances by Robert Pulie and Bonnita Bub. Chill out with Claire Finnerans ASM RnB session, day party around sculptures by Yasmin Smith and Nick Maurer and come down with a performance by Gregory and Watts.

What is Primavera? It’s our annual exhibition of young Australian artists aged 35 years and under. See it from 23 Sep – 30 Nov.
