Fambo: Glow at the MCA

Queer art for all kinds of families at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia

Celebrate Queer culture in a space created by contemporary artists for all kinds of families.

Across three Friday nights during Vivid Sydney 2023, step inside a glowing new world where the rules have been bent, changed, and reimagined.

Join a one-hour session where participants can experience an immersive installation by artists Justin Shoulder and Matthew Stegh inspired by the radical Queer art party Monsta Gras, and a hands-on workshop by a different contemporary artist each night.

Please note, tickets give you access to the workshop and installation space for a 1 hour session. 

Limited capacity, advance booking recommended.
