MCA June Artbar curated by Tully Arnot

When: Friday, 28th June, 2013
Where: Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, NSW

Immerse yourself in the speculative and visionary worlds of artists, eccentrics and the occasional cyborg as June curator Tully Arnot explores new possibilities for reality in MCA Art Bar: Unreal.

Revel in this one-night-only art, music, and performance event while drinking with friends – real or imaginary.
Discover the utopia of the individual creative mind with inventive and idealistic visions provided by June’s artists.
Tickets ~ http://tickets.mca.com.au/?eventId=35586

Experience visual and aural installations by CHRIS PETRO and TIM DWYER, attend CHRISTINE SUN KIM’s mesmerizing silent opera and take an alternative audio tour with GREGORY AND WATTS.

Sit down and navigate the MCA through JOSH HARLE’s playable video game version of the museum, attach a prosthetic third eye and enter the sonochromatic world of cyborg NEIL HARBISSON and see ‘behind the curtain’ in ANGELA GARRICK’s interactive a cappella audio installation.

Take the lift and step into 3 square meters of psyche in MCA lift attendant CHARLES ARNOT’s mini paradise, spare a moment to absorb the spiritual advice of ROBIN HUNGERFORD and explore the intricate sculptural installations of CHARLES DENNINGTON.

Ponder the uncanny videos of GISELLE STANBOROUGH, open your eyes to the fluorescent reality of JOAN ROSS, watch out for CATHERINE OR KATE’s gossiping robot vacuum cleaners and visit the theatre to experience EMILE ZILE’s reflections on cinematic excess.

Plus… overload your senses with an official Sydney edition of Rafaël Rozendaal’s acclaimed exhibition format BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer).

All accompanied by the soothing tunes of Melbourne’s finest, SUPERSTAR.
