An exhibition showcasing costumes and props from across the Marvel
franchise is now showing at GOMA
until 3 September, 2017.
‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe’ features more than 60 costumes and 500 objects, along with behind the scenes insights and secrets. Australia’s first major Marvel exhibition, it is the largest presented at an art museum worldwide.
QAGOMA partnered with Marvel Studios to bring this unique exhibition to life.
It encompasses the entirety of GOMA’s ground floor, allowing visitors to browse displays, roam through set designs, and view concept and key frame art and clips from the films. The exhibition draws on Marvel’s extensive archives to give audiences unprecedented insight into the rich fictional world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Legendary characters and their complex personas and relationships are profiled, with a focus on Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and the Avengers, alongside Doctor Strange, Ant-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Tribute is also paid to the artists and creative teams behind the much loved stories. Visitors can see the work of production designers, storyboarding and pre-visualisation artists, costume and prop designers, and visual effects artists.
For fans both new and seasoned, must-see highlights include Tony Stark’s race car from Iron Man 2, Thor’s hammer, multiple versions of Iron Man’s armour including the imposing three metre tall Hulkbuster, the Eye of Agamotto from Doctor Strange, and never before seen items from the set of the upcoming film Thor: Ragnarok, including the majestic Asgardian throne room. Interactive experiences throughout the exhibition invite visitors to delve even further into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
