MCA Late

When

Fridays, 5pm to 9pm Friday 21 January to Friday 24 June

Start your weekend with a culture fix every Friday evening when we keep our doors open until 9pm. Take your time to stroll through our incredible free and ticketed exhibitions.

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 Club, and get your groove on at Sounds on the Terrace, our live music event featuring emerging talent.

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.
