The Museum of Contemporary Art is re-opening its Sculpture Terrace again to two more summer Sunday nights of art, music and dancing. As part of its FCxMCA series, Australian label and taste-makers Future Classic has created a line-up of international and home-grown talent to take over the museum’s Sculpture Terrace over January and February, with Broadsheet as the proud media partner.
On Sunday January 17, Brisbane’s Wafia will bring her blend of minimal electro-pop, as seen on her debut EP XXIX, released by Future Classic in November. The show should be a well-oiled performance – Wafia performed alongside contemporary art at the MoMA PS1 in NYC last year. Joining her will be Sydney-based rapper Sampa The Great, whose experimental beats and left-field rhythms are inspired by growing up in Botswana. The two’s electronic, minimal style will be the soundtrack to the city’s lights appearing as the afternoon fades into a summer night.
On Sunday February 21 New York producer Anthony Naples will spin his trademark intertwining of rough-cut techno with slow-burner rises and samples. He’s had a busy 2015 since releasing his debut album, Body Pill; touring world-wide famous institutions such as London’s Fabric and Berlin’s Berghain. Melbourne duo Sleep D will take over as sunset DJs to showcase some of Australia’s house and techno.
Art will be the opening act to both events – the MCA will extend its gallery opening hours just for ticket-holders, so you can wander between exhibitions such as Grayson Perry’s My Pretty Little Art Career from 5pm–6pm. Drinks will be served and sponsored by Absolut Botanik, Apple Jacks cider and Jameson whiskey.
The Second round of FCxMCA events will take place on Sunday January 17 and Sunday February 21 from 5pm on the MCA Sculpture Terrace.
Tickets are available now at mca.com.au/series/fc-x-mca.
