SHOW UP: A celebration of Black Music

8 July

July 8, 2022

Institute of Modern Art

To celebrate NAIDOC week and farewell Jenn Nkiru’s show ⁠REBIRTH IS NECESSARY join us for an evening of Hip Hop music, culture, party and performance by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, curated by Shannon Brett.

SHOW UP and hit the dancefloor to classic 90s RnB and hip hop tunes spun by DJ Baddz, and enjoy performances by Meanjin-based First Nations hip-hop dancers Ziggy Wade, Dylan Wotton and Damian Mulligan. 

This event will be in the IMA Courtyard, so please wear something warm, though we’re sure you’ll be shedding layers in no time! The IMA shop and galleries will stay open late for you to enjoy REBIRTH IS NECESSARY and An Alternative Economics. For one night only, purchase LORE fabrics and accessories from the IMA shop.

*This is a safe space for all black and brown people, LGBTQIA+ and gender diverse communities and respect from allies in attendance is necessary.

For a deadly NAIDOC night out, the party will continue at Ivory Tusk (formally Woolly Mammoth) with the annual ‘Big NAIDOC afterparty’ hosted by Black Diamond Entertainment.
