Brace yourself – the Museum of Contemporary Art’s popular monthly after-dark party, ARTBAR, gets the Chicks on Speed treatment this February.
Following the success of the Justin Shoulder and Glitter Militia-curated ARTBAR, the Museum of Contemporary will again push the boundaries of art and performance and turn the gallery experience on its head by handing over the ARTBAR reins to the unstoppable Chicks on Speed.
This Friday night, the girls – Alex Murray-Leslie and Melissa Logan – present JAM-arrama, which boasts a delightful and tantalising line-up of artists, interactive music technicians, composers and performers to jam after dark at this month’s instalment of ARTBAR.
Emma Price, Techa Noble, Tina Havlock Stevens, the Lycra Ladies, Bert Bongers and many more will help in bringing technology, people and music together in an explosion of colour and sound.
There are new musical experiences to be had with robots, motion-controlled sensor performances plus other art and technology goodness.
Interact with the Reactable from Björk’s 2007 world tour, test the prototype of Chicks on Speed’s soon to be released app and hear samples of work from their upcoming album Utopia.
Cap it all off upstairs with one massive jam on the MCA’s Sculpture Terrace.
ARTBAR is held on the last Friday of every month at the MCA. Curated by artists, its aim is to offer the public a new gallery experience by fusing art, performance, music and design.
Chicks on Speed will kick off Jam-arrama with a performance on MCA Square at 7pm.
