During the month of October, aMBUSH Gallery Kambri will be filled with sights and sounds that represent student life at ANU over the past seven decades, with the opening of the new exhibition Woroni – 70 Years of Outrage and Activism.
Woroni sprang to life in 1950, starting as the ANU student newspaper, and has since morphed into a print magazine, a website, a radio station and a TV program, providing multiple outlets for ANU students to have their voices heard.
Curated by current Woroni staff and presented by aMBUSH Gallery, the exhibition is an entertaining and often humorous retrospective highlighting issues of Activism (feminism, Indigenous rights, LGBTIQ+ issues, politics, free speech) and Outrage (sex, drugs, nudity, profanity).
Guests wishing to attend the opening of Woroni – 70 Years of Outrage and Activism will need to pre-register via Eventbrite as the gallery capacity is limited to a maximum of 48.
Opening night is Thursday, 1 October from 6-9pm (3x 45min viewings, with 15min clean in between viewing sessions) at aMBUSH Gallery, with drinks from Capital Brewing and Lerida Estate, plus music from a Vessel Collective DJ.
The exhibition will be open to the public daily from 10am-6pm weekdays and 12pm-5pm on weekends until Sunday, 1 November. Admission is free.
