Colour Fields Pop-up Bar at MCA
Carona’s curtains pass with flying colours
Scoundrel Projects via Yippee Ki-Yay
Inspired by a recent exhibition, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) wanted to incorporate some alfresco colour into its Circular Quay location. It turned to Scoundrel Projects for a creative solution.
Scoundrel Projects’ James Dive and Adrian Shapiro conjured up a vibrant destination for quayside drinks – the Colour Fields pop-up bar – and worked with production service Yippee Ki-Yay to bring their vision to life.
And it was Carona’s PVC Strip Curtains that delivered the desired effect.
“Scoundrel Projects came to us with their concept. We did a lot of research and found Carona’s PVC curtains were the perfect material for this project,” said Brad Burnet, owner of Yippee Ki-Yay. Not only were Carona’s PVC curtains the perfect width and thickness, they could be painted in exactly the right colours with vinyl paints.

“We considered importing pre- coloured PVC curtains from overseas, but the colours weren’t right. There were also the extra costs and extended delivery times to consider,” Brad explained.
“With Carona, we got exactly what we wanted, at the right price and the right time. We then painted the curtains exactly the right colour to get the desired effect.” Carona’s customer service was another highlight for Brad.
“Carona was really accommodating. At one point we ran out of stock – not surprising given we used almost a kilometre of curtains – and they pulled out all stops to get more for us,” he said .
