The Lock Up's best art party THE BENDER is BACK with another dose of the wild and glorious.



The Lock Up's best art party returns with another dose of the wild and glorious. A celebration of collaboration and experimentation, THE BENDER has built a reputation as an immersive interdisciplinary feast. 

This year THE BENDER will present performance artist Radha (Shahmen Suku) as the headline act. Known for his work on ABC's live music TV show 'The Set' and as the curator of 2019 Vivid Sydney edition of ARTBAR at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Radha (Shahmen Suku) will bring a unique cooking show experience that examines racial and cultural identity, gender roles, the home and the kitchen, food and storytelling.

Full artist lineup: Baroque-a-coco Karaoke Spectacular (Jen Denzin, Lyndal Campbell, Bridie Watt, Joanne Back) | Caelli Jo Brooker, Ahn Wells & Alison Smith | Mel O’Dell | Jacinta Rose Durney | Alysha Fewster & Paddy Freeman | Genevieve Graham | Oliver Harlan | Radha (Shahmen Suku) | Jerry Ray | Axl Rod (Alli Sebastian Wolf ) | Jessica Thallmaier | The Palace (Wanjun Carpenter) | Troth (Amelia Besseny & Cooper Bowman) | Grace Turner | Genevieve Lore Finn Unicorn + MORE TO COME 

After last year's SELL OUT show - we recommend you don't dilly dally in getting tickets! You definitely do not want to miss out. 

Please note, this event is an 18+ years event only.
