This is a heads up, particularly for those down under.

Just over twenty years ago Ultan Guilfoyle and I were co-curators of the record-breaking The Art of the Motorcycle exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. During its time at the Guggenheim in New York, Bilbao (Spain), and Las Vegas over 2 million visitors saw the motorcycles we selected, a quarter-million bought the 432-page catalog, and countless others watched programs about them on television and read about them in upwards of a thousand magazine and newspaper stories.

Ultan and I are now creating a completely re-imagined look at the past, present, and future of motorcycles with the working title Motorcycles: Desire ~ Art ~ Design. The exhibition will open at the Queensland Art Gallery|Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) in Brisbane on 28 November 2020 as their summer blockbuster and run through April 25, 2021. For those unfamiliar with QAGOMA, it is one of Australia's most important visual arts institutions and has more than one million visitors annually, 30 percent from interstate and overseas. We also are in initial discussions for the exhibition to travel outside Australia following its run in Brisbane.

Feel free to circulate this information, and to organize club meetings or rallies in Brisbane during the exhibition.
