Opening Night: Pleasure Party + Performances & DJ + Prizes for Best Outfit

Pleasure presents the work of a diverse group of artists who use the body to celebrate joy, humour, flamboyance and the outrageous

From decoration, embellishment and exaggeration to examinations of identity and beauty and its various interpretations, RMIT Gallery’s provocative new exhibition Pleasure (29th November – 7th March 2020) explores how artists and designers have used the body as a personal, provocative and at times political canvas from the flamboyant 1980’s to contemporary times.

Join us at the opening night party – which will offer many surprises and pleasures… including DJ, performances and prizes for best outfit…this is an end of year celebration of the arts not to be missed. Book here.
