Calling all Super Heroes and Super-Villains to The Art of the Brick: DC Comics, exclusive to the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.

Created by legendary LEGO® artist Nathan Sawaya, this contemporary art exhibition uses over a million bricks to create more than 120 large-scale sculptures of the most enduring Super Heroes and Super-Villains: from Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, to The Joker and Harley Quinn. Spread across 10 distinct galleries, it is the world’s largest collection of DC Comics-inspired LEGO artwork, ever!

The Art of the Brick: DC Comics showcases Sawaya’s interpretations on characters, vehicles, environments and themes found throughout the DC Comics mythology including transformation and reinvention, strength and weakness, as well as good vs. evil. Get ready to inspire the hero within! Due to popular demand, this exhibition has been extended until Monday 13 June 2016.

A new, large-scale sculpture made from over 30,000 LEGO® bricks has been unveiled for the final weeks of the exhibition. Called ‘Showdown’, it features an epic confrontation between Batman and Superman and its release coincides with the Australian launch of Warner Bros. Pictures film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
