Grab your ball gown and raise your glasses high because Julie Rrap will be transforming this month’s MCA ARTBAR into an after-dark masquerade.

‘Art Acts’ will bring the College to the Institution with a party dedicated to honouring and illuminating the long and continuing history of Sydney College of the Arts (SCA), through a celebration of Rrap’s students and SCA contemporaries.

Hit all your senses with a sound and visual artwork by David Haines and Joyce Hinterding. Ever tasted an artwork before? Tayla Tallis’ pastry artwork will serve your tastebuds …

About Julie Rrap
Julie Rrap’s involvement with body art and performance in the mid-70s in Australia continued to influence her practice as it expanded into photography, painting, sculpture and video in an on-going project concerned with representations of the body. For the August ARTBAR, Julie is curating a program comprised of students from the Sydney College of the Arts, bringing video art, music and interactive spaces to the fore!
