MCA Late


in partnership with

A cultural excursion is always better at a time slot that is cocktail-appropriate. So, Sydneysiders will be pleased to know that the Museum of Contemporary Art is back with MCA Late, the fan-favourite that sees the doors stay open on Friday nights with a string of fresh music acts, talks, workshops and film screenings in tow. And entry is free.

Kick off your weekend early and appreciate the works of five young artists at Primavera 2021, dive deep into the 23rd Biennale of Sydney with rivus or return to your favourites in the permanent collections. If you want to get more hands-on, head to a clay-based workshop led by Ebony Russell or sign up for Sundown Sketch, which sees museum-goers explore the current works via a drawing class (with a glass of wine at hand, too). Want to make sure you never miss an opportunity to flex your own creative muscles? Sign up to the MCA Late mailing list.

Sounds on the Terrace will take over the rooftop Sculpture Terrace on April 8, 15 and 22. Take the lift up for a unique lineup of music performances and the chance to wrap your ears around the sound of local talent. One week Bria will be spinning her vibe-heavy tracks, and poet Sara M Saleh will be hosting Marcus Whale and experimental Arabic music collective Ensemble Dandana the next. Down on the forecourt, Muggera will be cutting shapes, providing an opportunity for audiences to learn and be entertained by a kunjil (dance) performance from the traditional owners of our land.

Sip a perfectly balanced Jaffa Negroni while you get your fill — and glitzy views of the harbour after dark — at the MCA Cafe. Then, check in for retail therapy at the MCA Store.

MCA Late is the ideal way to shake up your after-dark activity rotation. Head to the website to check out the program. Please note, some exhibitions are ticketed.
