GOMA Up Late: Super Hero-sized Friday nights with live music & MARVEL

Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art is set to present an outstanding musical line-up of pop, electronica and rock across six Friday nights when ‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe’ Up Late series kicks off on 28 July.

Live performances from Australian acts Art vs Science, Olympia, Black Cab, Habits, Models and NO ZU will feature in the six week program, which includes a resident DJ, pop-up bars and live talks in the exhibition space.

Of this particular Up Late series, QAGOMA Director Chris Saines says it offers audiences ‘a unique after-dark experience of Australia’s first major Marvel exhibition – the largest ever presented in an art museum. It’s a Super Hero-sized Friday night out.’ Each session starts at 5.30pm with resident DJ Emma Stevenson playing in GOMA’s River Room, before the headline performers take to the stage.
