Curated by Sebastian Goldspink, the show featured works from eight artists, each examining the craftsmanship and creativity involved in making art and brewing beer. “The idea [was] to explore uncommon pairings,” Goldspink explained. And with artworks ranging from paintings to sculptures to installation pieces like Jason Wing’s Fossil Fuel – a collection of resin-cast shells with ghostly facial features – we’d certainly call the event a success.
The drinks list, too, was a curated affair – as you might expect with MoCU behind the bar. The star of the night was the Grand Kirin Dip Hop IPL, a hoppy number brewed in Japan using rice malt. Uncommon pairings indeed.
MoCU also held a special preview session of Happy When it Rains just for Smith readers. As you can see from the above photos, it was quite a hoot. For more information on the exhibit and the artists involved, head over to MoCU. Where, conveniently enough, you can also purchase some beer without leaving the house. A perfect wet weather activity.
