I am the old and the new

This Event has now passed.

MCA GENEXT returns on 15 July with a very special program inspired by the work of acclaimed Kuninjku artist John Mawurndjul, on show at the MCA as part of his major survey exhibition, John Mawurndjul: I am the old and the new.

GENEXT is a free, all-access, festival-style event that is strictly for young people aged 12–18 years. Enjoy free snacks, live music, artist-run workshops, social activities and exclusive after-hours entry to all exhibitions.

GENEXT is programmed and run by the MCA Youth Committee, with support from MCA artist educators and Young Creatives Coordinator.

GENEXT is a drug and alcohol free event. It is also a parent and teacher-free event that is supervised by MCA staff, gallery hosts and artist educators.

Running time: 3 hours (6pm - 9pm)
