Stellar Up Late for ‘Marvel’


The Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) will present a stellar line-up of pop, electronica and rock across six Friday nights when ‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe’ Up Late kicks off from 28 July to 1 September 2017.

Live music from Australian acts Art vs Science, Black Cab, Habits, Olympia, Models and NO ZU will feature in the six week long program, which also includes a resident DJ, pop-up bars and talks in the exhibition space. This Up Late program offers audiences a unique after-dark experience of Australia’s first major Marvel exhibition – the largest ever presented in an art museum.

Doors open from 5.30pm with resident DJ Emma Stevenson spinning records in GOMA’s River Room, before the headline performers take to the stage on the following dates:

Each Up Late evening will feature local artisans delivering an ‘All in the Details’ talk where they will highlight and discuss the craftsmanship involved in some of their favourite pieces in the exhibition. Artisans across a wide range of creative fields will participate in the discussions, including blacksmith Robert Everingham, make-up artist Billie Weston, jeweller Bianca Mavrick, and textiles conservator Michael Marendy.

‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe’ Up Late is exclusively sponsored by global apparel retailer UNIQLO, also principal partner for the exhibition.

‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe’ is organised by QAGOMA in collaboration with Marvel Entertainment. The exhibition has received additional support from the Queensland Government though Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) and Arts Queensland.
