Hotel QT Sydney and Experience the MCA's Light Show This Winter

  • Written by Stephen Howard


With its strong focus on art and design, QT Sydney,
 the most cutting-edge design hotel in Australia and the official hotel partner of Sydney's iconic Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) has launched the 'Light It Up' package for guests to celebrate the opening of the museum's spectacular new 'Light Show' exhibition, coinciding with Vivid this winter.

The 'Light It Up' package at QT Sydney includes overnight accommodation for two guests in a luxurious QT King Deluxe room, breakfast for two at the hotel's award-winning restaurant Gowings Bar & Grill, and two tickets to 'Light Show' at the MCA.  This major exhibition explores all facets of light and its versatility as a sculptural medium, showcasing nearly 20 installations and sculptures by international artists from the 1960s to today, including such renowned luminaries as Dan Flavin, Francois Morellet, David Batchelor, Carlos Cruz-Diez, James Turrell and Anthony McCall.

Presented in conjunction with Vivid Sydney and the UN/Unesco 2015 International Year of Light, 'Light Show' will also be complemented by a series of public programs, including LIGHT LAB, a creative family space offering free interactive activities with light and color, and extended hours at MCA until 9pm every night during Vivid Sydney (May 22-June 8, 2015).

Since opening in September 2012, and as the only member of the exclusive Design Hotels to be located in Sydney, QT has transformed the city's hospitality scene and, with its unique design and art-centric interior, has established a reputation for being a venue for showcasing contemporary artists and a wildly eclectic collection of new medium art throughout the hotels public areas, lifts, lobbies, dining spaces and guest rooms.

QT Sydney's Art Curator, Amanda Love, has commissioned and acquired a vast collection of modern art that is the hallmark of the hotel's public spaces. With a strong focus on local and regional talent, works include a signature digital installation by New Zealand artist Daniel Crooks, a multi-channel installation by indigenous artist Daniel Boyd, and sculptures by Sydney-based Morgan Shimeld. 

The Light It Up Package:

  • Overnight accommodation in a QT King Deluxe
  • Breakfast in Gowings Bar & Grill
  • 2 tickets to the MCA 'Light Show'

Prices start from $370 per night and available for bookings between 16 April – 5 July.
