Celebrating Goddesses of screen culture through fashion and glam

Female screen icons and local women leaders gathered at the red carpet opening of ACMI’s 'Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion'.

Goddess: Power, Glamour, Rebellion is perhaps the most anticipated exhibition programmed at ACMI this year. It brings together material from over 120 years of screen culture to spotlight female icons and the ‘Goddess’ as a provocation.

First conceived five years ago, the exhibition was launched with a red carpet event at ACMI on Tuesday evening (4 April).

ArtsHub briefly spotted Hollywood actress and the exhibition’s ambassador, Geena Davis, during the red carpet arrivals, though she apparently departed before the crowd made it into the exhibition.
