ARTBAR happens after dark on the last Friday of every month.
For the month of July, exhibitions, music and live acts come together under the direction of artist Claudia Nicholson, transforming the MCA into a pulsating piece of performance art, Claudia tugs on our heart strings as she celebrates an evening of devotion, love and gift giving.

About Claudia Nicholson
Colombian-born Sydney-raised artist Claudia Nicholson is known for her contemporary twist on the colourful alfombra de aserrín (traditional South American sawdust carpet), created painstakingly over several days using sawdust, glitter and pigment. Claudia’s work seeks to reconnect her roots in traditional Latin American culture, with her contemporary practice in Australia.
She recently worked on the project Women of Fairfield commissioned by C3West, MCA, Power House Youth Theatre and STARTTS and was commissioned by Runway Australian Experimental Art to generate new digital work for issue #31 West.
