ACMI has given visitors the opportunity to see their trail-blazing exhibition Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion with a touch more glamour. 

For three nights only, Goddess Nights will transform the gallery into an after-dark party with entertainment and libations for guests to enjoy while they wander through the exhibition.

Featuring DJs, live performances, digital art and light shows and collaborations with 3D motion artist Mikaela Stafford and makeup artists from Avantgarde MUA Moochi, the event will showcase the power of female and gender non-conforming creatives.

Taking place in the ground floor Lightwell Foyer, Goddess Nights goes late into the evening. Guests can snack on nibbles from the specifically-curated menu by ACMI bistro Hero and on beverages from Campri and Handpicked Wines. There will also be extended retail hours for late-night shopping during the events.

Entertainment for the upcoming event will include house and disco spinner DJ JNETT, a live performance by buttery jazz and neo-soul vocalist CD, live offerings from the rising South Sudanese hip-hop star POOKIE and a fantastic mix of afro rhythms and global electronic by Irregular Fit founder Ayebatonye.

Future events may have different lineups – keep your eyes on ACMI’s website to stay updated.

ACMI’s Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion exhibition opened on April 5 and will run until October 1. It showcases the work of female makers and shakers who transformed the film industry, from Mae West to Marylin Monroe.

Displaying costumes, sketches, interactive experiences and other film industry treasures, the inspiring exhibition highlights the achievements of those in the industry who are often stereotyped or overshadowed.
