Future Beauty at GOMA Comes to a Close

Written by

Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) Director Chris Saines said the exhibition, which runs until Sunday 15 February, has been a great success with Brisbane fashionistas.

'Future Beauty' has been part of the Gallery's summer focus on contemporary Japanese art and design, which also includes the Collection-based exhibition 'We can make another future: Japanese art since 1989' and the beloved Children's Art Centre installation, Yayoi Kusama's The obliteration room,' said Mr Saines.

'There are still three Friday nights of our popular Up Late events to go before 'Future Beauty' must close on Sunday 15 February,' said Mr Saines.

On 6 February, a double bill of Australian talent will feature a sumptuous performance from producer, vocalist and songwriter Oscar Key Sung, and the ambient dream-pop of three-piece electronic indie band MTNS, before indie pop four-piece Last Dinosaurs bring their energetic, upbeat melodies to close the Up Late series on 13 February.

Visitors to the Gallery during the final weeks of Up Late also have the chance to hear from ground breaking designers and fashion identities in the 'Fashion in Action' floor talks and receive a Future Beauty-inspired makeover from the LylaClare Style Team.

Closing weekend celebrations will include the final Future Fashion Sundays event, including a Fabric and Garment swap hosted by The Stitchery Collective, an Art and Fashion one-on-one floor talk with local Queensland artist Michael Zavros and Gail Reid, the designer behind Brisbane fashion label Gail Sorronda, plus a curator's talk and a hands-on fashion illustration workshop.

Up Late tickets available online at www.qagoma.qld.gov.au, Adults $25.00, QAGOMA Members $22.00; bookings fees apply when purchased in advance. The two-for-one ticket offer is available Tuesdays from the exhibition ticket desk.
