We welcome our 500,000 visitor to GOMA’s 10th Birthday


This week the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) welcomed its 500,000th visitor to our 10th anniversary program headlined by our major exhibition ‘Sugar Spin: you, me, art and everything’ on view until Monday 17 April 2017. ‘Sugar Spin’ showcases GOMA’s extraordinary collection of contemporary art, as well as major new commissions.

GOMA’s 10th anniversary program is a multi-faceted art experience for audiences of all ages. More than 10,000 visitors a day experienced the ‘GOMA Turns 10 Summer Festival’ in January, and this week we now celebrate more than half a million visitors to the ‘GOMA Turns 10’ program.

The 10th anniversary had provided a chance to reflect on GOMA as a space for the expression and exchange of art and ideas and to consider how it has contributed to the cultural life and profile of Queensland.

We would like to thank our local, national and international audiences, and supporters across government, the corporate and private sector, and our extraordinarily generous benefactors. ‘Sugar Spin’ is made possible with the support of Principal Sponsor Audi Australia. All have believed in GOMA as a place to inspire and create wonder, and enabled us to continue presenting a rich and varied exhibition and public program.

Our next major exhibition exclusive to GOMA is ‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe‘ and the accompanying Marvel film retrospective which opens Saturday 27 May 2017. Tickets now on sale
