Zombies crash art exhibition

10:33 am on 9 December 2012

Twenty protesters dressed as zombie farmers stormed the official opening of a contemporary art exhibition in Brisbane on Saturday.

They were protesting against a sponsorship deal between the Gallery of Modern Art and Santos, a coal seam gas company.

AAP reports weekend art buffs and gallery staff wwere shocked as they shuffled into the building, groaning and drooling fake blood. However, one elderly patron thought they were part of the exhibition.

Two police officers pushed them back before reinforcements were called.
