MCA Late

When

Fridays, 5pm to 9pm Friday 5 November to Friday 17 December

Start your weekend with a culture fix every Friday evening when we keep our doors until 9pm. Take your time to stroll through our incredible free exhibitions or soak up the spectacular views at our rooftop cafe over a drink*.

Plunge into the world of American artist Doug Aitken in his Sydney-exclusive exhibition Doug Aitken: New Era . As you wander, keep an eye out for the night’s pop up performance. Each week, a different musician, artist or poet will hold intimate performances through the night. Follow us on our socials to find out more about what's in store.

Your favourite after-dark activities have moved to Fridays as well. Unleash your creativity at our always popular Sundown Sketch ClubSounds on the Terrace, our live music event featuring emerging talent will take place on 5, 12 and 19 November.

If you feel inspired after your visit, the MCA Store will be open for late-night shopping.

Entry into the Museum is free. Doug Aitken: New Era is ticketed.
