Event Details

MAASive Lates: Vivid Ideas
28 May 2015, 6-9pm

Where there is a void, there can be freedom.

Explore creativity without convention as we drive you into the dark-side of contemporary culture and get a bit Lo-Fi. Discover the absence of conformity as the Powerhouse Museum becomes a living, breathing cabinet of curiosities for Vivid Ideas.

Feed your muse in our exhibitions while immersing yourself in experiences to spark the senses along the way.

Choose between three different streams of activities focused on

Audio: For those that love to bask in what pleases the ears;
Visual: Treats for eyes that seek the unusual;
Cardio: Calorie busting and a little bit weird…
OR freestyle through the program highlights to choose your own adventure.
Collect 5 experiences on your ‘MAASive experience passport’, then present your passport to get a scoop of FREE museum-made liquid nitrogen ice cream – Submit your passport for a chance to win a Vivid Alleyway Dining Experience for two! (value of $300).

The evening will feature Rainbow Chan, a Sydney singer/producer with a love for storytelling. An eclectic mix of vintage tones, sweet textural landscapes and layers of glitchy sounds, Rainbow Chan’s music is forward-thinking pop, embedded in the nostalgic imagination.

We’ll also hear from one of the few large-scale improvisational ensembles working in Australia, The Splinter Orchestra; The Fuzzy-Wuzzy Drum n Bass/Jungle beat stylings of Peaches the Wale; the 20 femme fatales of the Bad Bitch Choir and the reverberations of Thomas William and Horse MacGuyver creating drone electronica.

Dance without inhibition with a special Powerhouse Museum edition of ‘No Lights, No Lycra’, join contemporary jeweler Melinda Young in creating jewellery out of recycled bits and bobs including electronic parts, cables and wires and explore our ‘Interface’, ‘Undressed: 350 years of underwear in fashion’ and ‘A Fine Possession: Jewellery and Identity’ exhibitions.

Participate in the experimental take on the well-known Beep Tests of year 10 PE classes with “Marcus Whale’s Noise Beep Test” and make large scale Origami with Sydney Origami Club. The Aperture Club will also offer interactive ‘Painting with Light’ sessions.

Our museum educators will be conducting a number of drop-in activities involving creating small science experiments (string-can telephones, kinetic puzzles, simple electric circuits and simple musical instruments with paddle pop sticks) while also demonstrating the Virtual Reality landscape of the Mars Yard.

Savour the absence of ordinary – tuck into surprising eats by our guest food truckers, Tsuru Food Truck and Veggie Patch Van, plus unusual cocktails by Bio-Hack Sydney.

Fill that absence in your life at MAASive Lates!
