The curators of Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art were probably expecting critics wanting to pick their brains about a new exhibition, instead, they got a zombie invasion.

 

 

About 20 protesters dressed as zombie farmers stormed the official opening of the 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art on Saturday.

 

The undead farmers were protesting against a sponsorship deal between the gallery and the coal seam gas giant Santos.

 

Groaning and drooling fake blood as they shuffled into the building, the scabbed flesh-eaters shocked the crowd of weekend art buffs and gallery staff.

 

One elderly lady, however, thought they were part of the exhibition.

 

Two police officers managed to push back the onslaught before reinforcements were called in.

 

But by the time it arrived, the protest had died down with the zombies mingling on a nearby lawn.
