Yeti Out transforms Hong Kong’s M+ Museum for a night of high-octane energy

M+ Museum has teamed up with Yeti Out to curate an evening of nightlife programming inspired by the dynamic spirit and ever-evolving realms of street culture.

Though museum curation and sweaty afterparties may be an unlikely pairing, in the unconventional world of Yeti Out, let’s just say anything goes.

“We’ve just been doing stuff we like with friends in our corner. One day, you get a call asking ‘how about you come and do what you do, over here?’” says Arthur Bray, M+ Night guest programmer & Yeti Out co-founder.

The event aptly named M+ At Night Yeti & Friends Takeover spans across three floors of music performances, round table discussions, screenings, interactive art installations and dance performances.

Arthur continues to embed his "Yeti & Friends" ethos in the diverse programming, where the intersections of community and expression are at the center of his crew's street-borne ideas, taking form in pop-up art shows, late night dance parties, radio shows, and graphic designs akin to the crew's overall aesthetic and energy.

Music programming will consist of Hong Kong artist /rapper N.O.L.Y from Wildstyle Records and Boys Choir, Canto, post-punk band 南洋派對N.Y.P.D. who’ll perform an improvised, hybrid electronic set, and b2b sets from the Yeti Out crew; brothers Arthur and Tom Bray, Subez and Fergus.

Dance performance-wise, B-Boy ET and BOMS represent Buddy Crew and leading Hong Kong Alpha Artnity Association in hosting a four-way battle, while Hong Kong street artist LOUSY will introduce LOUSY’S PLAYGROUND — an interactive hopscotch-inspired playground with gifts.

A curated selection of screenings featuring Yeti Out label Silk Road Sounds’ music video archive, with visual works from DJ Droopy, Bla Varld, The Magus Project, 南洋派對 N.Y.P.D,  and Blå Värld promises to immerse attendees in a mesmerising fusion of auditory and visual creativity.

Curator Sunny Cheung will host a conversation with Arthur Bray, artist Lily Cash and Mofo Tattoo founder Karl Hung, Victoria Skateboard founder Arthur Leung, plus artist/designer OffGod and grassroot events organizer Kate Woon on Street Culture's Role in Visual Communication.

The creative direction, concept, and curation of M+ at Night is a collaboration between M+ and Jason Swamy (Do What You Love Asia Ltd.) and Hugo Belloy (Dreams and Dreams Ltd). Complementing this visionary collaboration is Studio Raito as the expert orchestrators of light.
