For the August edition of ARTBAR, we invite artist and academic Gary Carsley to transform the MCA.

Join us in August for a celebration of music, performances and more. With Gary Carsley’s trademark wit and curiosity, this night will be one not to miss.

ARTBAR takes your gallery experience and flips it on its head with an artist-driven evening of art, music and performance. This after-dark, adults only (18+) art party transforms all levels of the Museum. Enjoy exclusive access to our current exhibitions after hours and dance into the night with DJs on our rooftop terrace with our incredible harbour views. Grab a bite to eat at our cafe, something to drink at the bar, and prepare for an evening of twists and turns.

Full program to be announced.
