Creating the Cinematic Universe

27 May 2017 – 3 Sep 2017
GOMA | Gallery 1.1 The Fairfax Gallery, Gallery 1.2, Cinema A, Cinema B | Ticketed

'Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe' will be presented exclusively at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) from 27 May to 3 September 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.
