Art, comedy and courage collide in the debut of Sam Kissajukian’s latest work, Museum of Modernia as part of Adelaide Fringe 2024.

Embark on a remarkable journey at the The Light Room with Sam Kissajukian’s latest masterpiece, Museum of Modernia. Following the acclaimed success of his 2023 show, 300 Paintings, Sam returns to captivate audiences with a blend of comedy, art, and raw insight into the world of Bipolar disorder.

Museum of Modernia is not just a show; it’s an experience. It’s a celebration of the extraordinary and a deep dive into the mind of an artist. Witness Sam’s ambitious vision of an art museum that came to life during a manic episode. This once intangible dream, now brought to reality, showcases Sam’s resilience and creativity.

The Light Room Studio’s state-of-the-art 25m, 270-degree LED screen await to transport you into the Museum of Modernia. This immersive live performance is a first-of-its-kind adventure, offering a unique point-of-view journey into the depths of Sam’s imagination.

The experience doesn’t end on stage. Post-performance, Sam personally escorts the audience through The Light Room Gallery for an intimate guided tour of his solo painting exhibition. This is your chance to get up close and personal with the art that shaped the show.

During daylight hours, the gallery transforms. Paintings of Modernia, Sam’s physical exhibition, opens its doors to the public. With a digital art component displayed on large screens in The Light Room Studio, visitors are free to explore the vivid expressions of an artist’s journey through Bipolar disorder.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to witness a show that transcends boundaries. Book your tickets now for an unforgettable experience at the Adelaide Fringe – Museum of Modernia, where art, comedy, and courage collide.
