Time Out says

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.

August 30

To celebrate the end of winter, the MCA is handing over its galleries to Lick Lick Blink (aka artist Wiloh S Weiland) and creative partner JR Brenan. They're creating a night of art and partying inspired by the Oracle at Delphi and fierce female wisdom. Your hosts for the night are ladies from the Older Women's Network, who'll help you navigate everything on offer, including music from Flower Boy and performances from the Polyphony choir, whose repertoire ranges from Bowie to Björk and Daft Punk to Saint-Saëns.
