'Blak Lens Collective' is an exhibition in the lobby of Liberty Place, featuring 30 stunning photographic works by four First Nations artists, all members of the community collective Blak Lens, founded by Michael Jalaru Torres.

The exhibition will run from 26 June to 22 July, tying into the timeline of NAIDOC Week (2-9 July). The NAIDOC Week theme for this year – ‘For Our Elders’.

The large-scale photographs of these emerging and established Blak photographers and videographers from across Australia have been brought together as a testament to the rich and diverse artistic talent within Indigenous communities.

The featured artists – Benjamin Warlngundu Ellis, Mandy Smith, Michael Jalaru Torres, and Tace Stevens – use their work to explore and celebrate the unique cultural heritage, experiences, and perspectives of Indigenous Australians, while also raising awareness of ongoing struggles and injustices faced by these communities in the present day.

The exhibition is curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery and presented by Liberty Place.
