First they got Thor, then they had Marvel superhero-themed clothing and now a major MCU exhibition.
Queensland is quickly becoming the home of Marvel in Australia with an exhibition featuring some 300 objects from the Cinematic Universe coming to the state.
The ‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe’ show is arriving EXCLUSIVELY – aka pretty much the only spot in Aus to get it – at Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) from 27 May to 3 September this year.
Pieces such as original artwork, film props and even your favourite characters’ costumes – maybe event Captain America’s and Thor’s – will be shipped to the Sunshine State to “bring to life the interconnected Marvel Cinematic Universe”.
According to The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art’s Director, Chris Saines, the exhibition will pay particular focus on the artists that helped translate the popular comic book characters onto the big screen.
“The exhibition experience will be all encompassing and extend into GOMA’s Australian Cinémathèque with a retrospective of the Marvel Cinematic Universe of films,” Saines explained.
So, what exactly can exhibition-goers expect to see at the ‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe’ show? Here are three items that Mr Saines says will be there:
There’s Thor’s hammer aka mjǫllnir
Iron Man’s suit (wonder which version)
Oh, and that iconic Captain America shield
It’s the first-of-its-kind Marvel exhibition to arrive in Australia and we have no doubt GOMA is expecting quite a lineup of fans when it arrives.
