Sat Jan 14 - Sun Apr 23

The Party celebrates LGBTQIA+ nightlife and party culture in Sydney from 1973 to 2002. It tracks the development of the dance party, from private home parties to larger productions in warehouses, including early Gay Liberation fundraisers, the influential Recreational Arts Team (RAT) parties, Mardi Gras, Sleaze Ball, Sweatbox, Inquisition, Homo Eclectus and Sex and Sub Culture.

The exhibition features documentation and ephemera from parties and venues alongside work by Australian artists, writers, and designers engaging with these histories.

Curated by José Da Silva and Nick Henderson.
