Dipped in paint and drenched in light, this month’s MCA ARTBAR is set to be a ripper. Curated by Huseyin Sami and colliding with Vivid Sydney become a part of your heaving and colorful surroundings as the MCA is transformed into a pulsating piece of performance art. Did we mention that it’s also our 4th birthday party?

This year Huseyin Sami is set to Illuminate the MCA façade during Vivid Sydney 2016, creating an illusion that the building is actually being carved, painted, cut and brushed.

ARTBAR happens after dark every month where exhibitions, music, and performance come together under the direction of a guest curator.

About the curator

Huseyin Sami is a Sydney based artist.

Huseyin Sami’s practice centres on the field of painting and he engages with the process of making paintings. His works explore the materiality of household paint into studies of colour, form and materiality in an attempt to define a unique material language of painting.
