The party will celebrate emerging and experimental practices at the forefront of contemporary culture. Guests will be able to experience six exhibitions, a program of live performances and video, DJs, local foods and drinks. Art & Design is co-hosting the event, which is curated by Campbelltown Arts Centre's Contemporary Performance Curator, Jessica Olivieri.
“Art Month Sydney is a massive city-wide celebration and we’re honoured to help showcase local contemporary art and artists by co-hosting the closing party,” says Professor Ross Harley, Dean of UNSW Art & Design.
“Guests can expect a huge night that will excite all the senses! From thought-provoking performances to vibrant live music, food, refreshments and great company – it’s definitely a party you don’t want to miss,” says Ross.
The evening’s line-up includes infectious DJ sets by Rainbow Chan and The Sex Havers; live projections by Sydney-based multidisciplinary artist James Nguyen in collaboration with Aunty Nguyen Thi Kim Nhung; provocative performance artist Ponnaya Devi; and live performances by Amrita Hepi, Marcus Whale and Athena Thebus. The night will end with a bang with a unique live drumming performance piece from Tina Havelock Stevens and Jo Lloyd.
