Marvel’s super heroes will descend on Queensland next year in a world-first, large-scale exhibition Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe at Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) from 27 May to 3 September 2017.
The first major Marvel-related exhibition to be staged in Australia and the largest ever presented in an art museum, 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.
Following Marvel heroes from comic book page to cinema screen, the exhibition includes original artwork, film props, costumes and more, and 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 experience will extend into QAGOMA’s Australian Cinémathèque with a retrospective of the official Marvel Cinematic Universe of films.
Kylie Watson-Wheeler, Managing Director, The Walt Disney Company Australia and New Zealand said the QAGOMA exhibition would provide Marvel’s Australian fans, some of the most passionate in the world, with the opportunity to truly immerse themselves in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“The power of Marvel lies in its broad appeal and how it connects with people of all ages,” said Ms Watson-Wheeler. “It’s wonderful that Queensland, QAGOMA and Marvel could bring this exhibition, the largest of its kind, to the people of Australia.”
Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe will be presented exclusively at the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) from 27 May to 3 September 2017. For more information, visit: www.qagoma.qld.gov.au for details.
