Where I Stand also includes works by Michael Cook, Dr. Judith Crispin and Michael Jalaru Torres. The 24 intensely personal works on display take viewers into realms of transformation, rebirth, identity, history, nature, connection and the Dreamtime. Exhibition Avenue is an innovative initiative of Kambri at ANU, produced and curated by aMBUSH Gallery. Run by Bill Dimas and John Wiltshire, aMBUSH is a gallery and social enterprise that has been at the forefront of curating and producing public arts programming and projects across metropolitan and regional Australia for over 12 years, with collaboration at the heart of their endeavours.
The gallery will feature a free year-round program of multidisciplinary exhibitions and activations, with an aim to showcase and support our world-class talent – both emerging and established – and provide an ever-changing ‘walk of art’ for staff, students, locals and visitors to Canberra alike. The exhibition is curated in partnership with aMBUSH’s long time collaborator, the Head On Photo Festival, founded in Australia by Moshe Rosenzveig OAM.
Where I Stand will be unveiled to the public on Monday 27 July, and thanks to solar powered lights will be on display 24 hours a day along Exhibition Avenue. In order to ensure the safety of the community, guests will be required to keep a distance of 1.5 metres at all times as per government social distancing guidelines. Click here for more information.
