QAGOMA’s partnership with UNIQLO celebrates both the first anniversary of its Brisbane Queen Street store opening and GOMA’s tenth anniversary. Both anniversaries are a milestone as they provide the opportunity to show what really makes Brisbane the magnetic, vibrant city it is.
Besides the display of QAGOMA art merchandise at UNIQLO, the Gallery in turn is displaying a selection of UNIQLO products in its GOMA Store at South Bank.
UNIQLO’s apparel comes from the Japanese values of simplicity, quality and longevity –designed to be of the time and for the time. This partnership brings together art merchandise from both the Japanese global apparel retailer and QAGOMA into the heart of the Brisbane community.
QAGOMA is known in its own right for local aficionados of culture as the QAG and GOMA Stores curate an inspiring and ever changing collection of design objects, art merchandise, artist materials, quality art books and stunning jewellery. The Gallery regularly collaborates with leading local artists, designers and makers to offer unique contemporary products.
