Special Event

– Curated by Hissy Fit

This Halloween eve, MCA ARTBAR gets darker than ever as artist trio Hissy Fit curate an apocalyptic night for ARTBAR: Dystopia. Scream your face off:

  • Get up close with artist Justin Shoulder’s full face and body sculptures; blurring the line between ‘worn’ and ‘performed’.
  • Conspiracy theory fan? Uncover secret symbology inside the MCA with a performance-lecture by Giselle Stanborough
  • Play up schoolyard nostalgia with Louise Zhang’s strawberry milk fountain artwork
  • Dance ‘til your last breath when DJ Sveta and The Smuts serve music on the rooftop terrace
  • Dress in your best dystopian outfit. Think Mad Max, Hackers and Tank Girl
  • PLUS drinks, eats, live art and installations from Toby K, Kelly Doley, Salote Tawale and more

#MCAARTBAR driven by Audi Australia

ARTBAR happens after dark every month. Exhibitions, music, design and live acts come together under the direction of a guest curator, transforming the MCA into a pulsating piece of performance art.
