For this edition of MCA ARTBAR, titled Up in Smoke Tour, Daniel Boyd will take the public on a musical and informative journey into a modern day interpretation of the enlightenment era, with DJs Captain Franco and Elston and, later in the evening, The Canyons enlightening attendees with a sound odyssey that promises not to disappoint.

With video works, panel discussions with the artist and his peers, movement, performance and the excitement of ARTBAR’s ordered chaos, the MCA invites the public to step into the artist’s mind and celebrate the Collection Galleries and the beginning of spring in true ARTBAR style.

The event will take over the entire wing and Volume One: MCA Collection on Level 2.

It is art but not as you know it.

$20/$15 MCA Members and Concessions in advance (booking fees apply)
$25 at the door (subject to availability)
Over 18s only.

Friday 28 September, 7∙00–11∙00 pm
