A vibrant cultural hub and bar by night, during the day SuperDeluxe@Artspace is a gallery venue, drop-in lounge, and an orientation centre for the 17th Biennale of Sydney: “The Beauty of Distance, Songs of Survival in a Precarious Age.”
For the first time in Australia, SuperDeluxe – Tokyo’s popular experimental performance space – will be based in Artspace for the duration of the 17th Biennale of Sydney.
SuperDeluxe was established in central Tokyo in 2002 as a venue for experimental music, art, culture and independent ideas.
In its Sydney reincarnation, SuperDeluxe@Artspace celebrates Japanese, Australian and world culture with an electric mix of local and international performers, including some of Japan’s leading acts. SuperDeluxe@Artspace will present a dynamic program of DJs, sound artists, dancers, music, films and the popular PechaKucha Nights. This exciting 12-week program has been co-curated by SuperDeluxe Tokyo, KDa, Namaiki, Joni Waka, Artspace and the Biennale of Sydney.
Thursday PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where people get together and present their ideas, works, thoughts, passions, quirky collections and just about anything else.
Friday and Saturday nights host international and national performers including major DJ’s, sound artists, performers and musicians from Japan, Australia and further afield.
Sunday afternoons will present a film program curated by Jack Sargeant with David Elliott, Artistic Director, 17th Biennale of Sydney.
