GOMA turns 10

The gallery of modern art turned 10 and to celebrate they put on an amazing show with some big show stopping exhibits! It was also the most crowded I've ever seen it so I had to keep reminding myself that everyone was probably wishing it was a little less packed and wished that Ben and I would have stayed home that day :p As always I include the artist and title of each work in my Flickr tags, so just click on any photo you want to know more info about :)



GOMA - glass deer






It was my first time to see a Ron Mueck piece in person and wow! how amazing - awe smacked for sure!



To remember all the artists and titles I take a photo of the info following the photo of the artwork - makes life much easier! GOMA was pretty packed that you even needed to line up to read the info card!


GOMA - Fluro fur



This fur was amazing and even though my hair has definitely faded, I still felt like I fitted in :)


Everyone was doing it!





They even had a giant slide down the middle!




GOMA - elephant


A lot of the exhibitions had been in previous collections, including this installation where you can write a letter and leave it behind and you can also read those left behind by others :)






GOMA - brisbane



Afterwards we walked over to the museum to get inspiration for clay making!
I'll be doing a seperate post for all my museum photos :) :)

  2. So many interesting pieces together! I would love to see a Ron Mueck in real life! and the fur and the pastel terrariums catch also my eye. I realized how much I miss going to an exhibit, need to check what is going on here in Barcelona :)

    1. That lady in big sculpture was even better than I had ever imagined and I've seen quite a few photos of her now - so many good details and textures to stare at, I really don't blame people lining up to want to read the info care :) :) Oh and those pastel terrariums are so cute hey by a lovely lady called Tanya Schultz whose art name is Pip & Pop!
