Stay up late and party like/with an artist at the MCA's up late social

The Museum of Contemporary Art's party series used to be held once a month, but as of 2019 is only taking place four times a year. But it's still the same basic idea: a night curated by a different artist or collective each edition, featuring art, performance and design – with killer views, party tunes and hands-on activities with artists.

Since Artbar kicked off in May 2012, we’ve seen the MCA's galleries graced with nude performance art, endurance table tennis, house party-style karaoke, vomit montages, huge inflatables and a live goat. Ah, artists. Never change.

Artbar tends to sell out in advance, so consider pre-purchasing those tickets.
