Presented in conjunction with the Cindy Sherman exhibition at GOMA, this latest offering in the Gallery’s popular after-hours program celebrates the power of ‘she’ with an all-female line-up of international and Australian performers.
Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) Director Chris Saines said Cindy Sherman was the first major Australian solo exhibition by the New York-based artist in more than 15 years and that GOMA would open exclusively after hours from 5.30pm to 10pm on select Friday nights for the Up Late program. “Audiences will have a chance to see Cindy Sherman after dark and engage in exhibition tours, live music and a series of floor talks with writers, stylists, performers and choreographers,” Saines said.
Each Up Late night will kick off with a set from Brisbane DJ collective Cheated Hearts (Jane Doe, Sezzo Snot and Eevvee) supporting the performers, with a schedule including Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson on September 9, Sydney’s Sampa the Great with songs from her 2015 debut studio album on September 16, award-winning Melbourne singer-songwriter Jess Ribeiro on September 23, and on 30 September, the last Friday of the exhibition, Melbourne’s Teeth & Tongue will mesmerise.
A storytellers floor talk series will feature leaders in a wide range of fields, including Queensland Ballet Resident Designer Noeline Hill, author Ellen Van Neervan, designer, artisan Susan Dimasi and more.
