THE MOTORCYCLE: DESIGN, ART, DESIRE

LET'S GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD


If The Motorcycle exhibition has got your motor running, turn it into a road trip and take the long way round. 

Racers, record breakers and road warriors; ‘The Motorcycle: Design, Art, Desire’ at GOMA opens the throttle on the ground-breaking designs that shaped one of the most iconic objects the world has ever seen.

Don't miss the once-in-a-lifetime chance to see 150 years of motorcycle design in the largest exhibition of historical, iconic and future road machines all in one place at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA).

Still looking for adventure? While at the Gallery, catch a moto-movie, grab a bite to eat or shop till you drop at the GOMA X DEUS collab store. The Motorcycle at GOMA is the perfect way to refuel after a ride.
