Join us for an intimate after-hours introduction to ‘GOMA Q: Contemporary Queensland Art’ from QAGOMA Director, Chris Saines. The first in a series of exhibitions that will profile the innovations and achievements of leading Queensland visual artists, ‘GOMA Q’ will present the work of over 30 emerging, mid-career and senior artists. After hearing about the exhibition from the Director, you’ll have a chance to explore the show – opened especially for this event – before moving through to the award-winning GOMA Restaurant for a seven-course degustation menu with matched premium wines. Taking inspiration from the exhibition, Executive Chef, Josue Lopez, has developed a menu to showcase the best of Queensland seasonal produce and flavours. Josue will introduce each dish, and the wines will be presented by a guest sommelier.
