There are only a couple of days left of Vivid Sydney, so if you haven’t managed to head out and experience the wonder that is this iconic event, it’s time to get cracking! Artisan would like to help you out, so we’ve taken a long hard look at the events schedule for the remainder of Vivid and put together your must see list. You’re welcome!
 
MURDER ON THE DANCEFLOOR
It’s hard not to be excited by the idea of an arts event named after the Sophie Ellis-Bextor banger that dominated the airwaves in 2001, it’s true.

Describing itself as a an immersive theatrical cocktail-culinary murder-mystery dancefloor experience, this shindig will see guests enjoying a 5 course degustation menu (which features a chicken dish personally endorsed by Snoop Dogg, although to be fair, when that man has the munchies he's liable to endorse anything), a musical soundtrack provided by DJ Kate Monroe, and of course a murder mystery to solve!

And it's all being held at the Crane Bar, a venue described as  "a Japanese temple-meets-secret garden". What more could you want?

WHEN: Friday 16th June 2017
TIME: 7pm - midnight
HOW MUCH: $60 ticket

REVOLUTIONS: PUBLIC ART EXHIBITION
If you remember the Barack Obama 'Hope' poster, then you're already familiar with the work of Shepard Fairey, an American artist who specialises in iconic imagery and whose art practice comments on mainstream commercialism and political propaganda. During Vivid Sydney, Fairey will be exhibiting 16 of his large-scale music-themed artworks, each printed on wood panels and showcasing his signature style. It's available to see 24/7, admission is free, and you can check it out over at the Darling Quarter's outdoor exhibition space.
