WET PAINT – Art Auction

To jumpstart 2018 MINBID is kicking off its shoes, pants and pretty much everything else for a night of art inspired by the naughty side of life. Join us for the first art auction of the year and one that will give the neighbours something to talk about.

Enjoy delicious drinks, bid on provocative art and dance to the sultry sounds of MonkeyTwerk DJs.

A night of art and culture that will keep you on the bid sheets, on the dance floor, or on the prowl! Get your tickets below. 

Battle Ménage á Trois.

To help build the hype for MINBattle 2018. Three MINBID artists will battle live in a ménage á trois of art and we fear, some body parts. Surely a spectacle you won’t want to miss. 

WET PAINT : March 9

*Gallery membership and open bar included in membership ticket. 18+ Event.

MINBattle 2018

MINBID is back in 2018 with a new battle series. 16-32 artists will enter but only 2 will be crowned MINBattle 2018 Champions. This year we have changed the rules and the way to win.

At the first battle and launch party on May 11 artists will be drawn by lottery to battle. 8-16 are picked that night, half will battle and half will judge. That’s right! Judged by fellow artists but also by auction price and audience votes. Get your paint, get your crew and get ready for a battle series like no other, MINBID style!


Two Champions will remain at the end of the battle series. Both will receive an artist prize pack valued at $150+, gallery space at MINBID and 4 free tickets to all 2019 MINBID events.

Must be 18+ to enter. $50 artist entry fee but we provide the canvas! There will be 3-4 battles and a final battle all held at MINBID One Gallery.
