Midway through winter 2020, aMBUSH Gallery – an initiative of Wiltshire + Dimas, the precinct managers of Kambri at ANU – launched an exciting creative enterprise: Exhibition Avenue, located along University Avenue.
Exhibition Avenue is an innovative initiative of Kambri at ANU, produced and curated by aMBUSH Gallery. Featuring a free year-round program of multidisciplinary exhibitions and activations, it aims 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 inaugural show on Exhibition Avenue – titled Where I Stand – is a stirring photographic exhibition from six iconic Australian artists – Michael Cook, Dr. Judith Crispin, Sarah Ducker, Murray Fredericks, Barbara McGrady and Michael Jalaru Torres.
Telling visual tales captured simply but powerfully in single frames, these 24 works take viewers into realms of transformation, rebirth, identity, history, nature, connection and the Dreamtime.
In such tumultuous times, the featured artists serve as influential mentors, assisting viewers with self-reflection and reassessment in the face of difficult universal experiences. Their art speaks of radical change and is an ultimately uplifting display that connects the audience to the strongest bonds of all – people, place and culture.
Where I Stand is presented by Kambri at ANU and aMBUSH Gallery and curated in partnership with Moshe Rosenzveig OAM, founder and festival director of Head On Photo Festival.
It is on display 24 hours a day, powered by solar lights, until 31 October.
