GOMA announces the Marvel Up Late program

This winter your Friday nights are set to involve pop, electronica and rock gigs, artisan talks and all things Marvel, as the opening of Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe heralds the return of GOMA’s popular Up Late program.

No major exhibition at GOMA is complete without the after-dark antics of Up Late. For this intergalactic-flavoured series, the gallery presents a line-up of performances from Australian bands, sets by DJ Emma Stevenson, pop-up bars and artisan talks that allow you to get up close with key pieces from the exhibition.

The program runs every Friday night for six weeks from 28 July, featuring a different band each week.

  • Art vs Science – 28 July
  • Black Cab – 4 August
  • Habits – 11 August
  • Olympia – 18 August (pictured)
  • Models – 25 August
  • NO ZU – 1 September

The opening of this exhibition is reflective of GOMA’s willingness to question where the boundaries of contemporary art should be drawn. It is the largest Marvel exhibition to be presented in an art museum, featuring 500 objects that explore the artistry involved in building such a detailed and interconnected comic universe.

To draw further attention to this theme, the Up Late series will feature ‘All in the Details’ talks from local artisans. Speakers include blacksmith Robert Everingham, make-up artist Billie Weston, jeweller Bianca Mavrick and textiles conservator Michael Marendy, who will each pick their favourite pieces in the exhibition and explore the craftsmanship that went into making them.

To spend your Friday nights surrounded by this fantastical exhibition, head to GOMA’s website to view the full program.
