MCA ARTBAR curated by Jess Johnson & Simon Ward



Jess Johnson & Simon Ward graffiti the MCA into a dystopic drive-in for this month’s MCA ARTBAR. Bunker inside the architecture of the MCA and move through a series of viewing zones, engaging with film, art and music along the way.

Toecutter will bring their own brand of thrash metal from the wastelands of Australia, Philip Brophy’s sonicscapes and video works will be projected throughout the Museum and the smell of burnt sausages from the post-apocalyptic BBQ will only be amplified by the… Burnt Sausages.

WHEN Friday, 7-11pm
HOW MUCH $24 General
$18 MCA Members and Concessions*
