Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe
The Queensland Art Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) will present the major exhibition Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe exclusively at Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) from Saturday May 27 to Sunday September 3 2017. It will be the first major Marvel-related exhibition to be staged in Australia and the largest ever presented in an art museum. Including original artwork, film props, costumes and more, the exhibition will bring to life the interconnected Marvel Cinematic Universe with characters including Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Black Panther, to name a few. The exhibition will follow Marvel heroes from comic book page to cinema screen. Content for the exhibition is drawn from private collections, and past and present Marvel Studios films, including the currently in–production Thor: Ragnarok. The exhibition will give significant focus to the Marvel comic artists, and the development teams who translate the drawn narrative to the screen through production design and storyboarding, costume and prop design, special effects and post-production. The exhibition experience will extend into GOMA’s Australian Cinémathèque with a retrospective of the official Marvel Cinematic Universe of films.
