aMBUSH Gallery is set to open in the Australian National University’s new Kambri precinct in May.

aMBUSH Gallery will open its doors with a culturally significant inaugural exhibition, While You Were Sleeping. This exhibition will feature the work of contemporary First Nations artists, established and emerging.

This striking multi-disciplinary show will feature painting, illustration, sculpture, photography and mixed media from a variety of artists.

aMBUSH Gallery is part of the incredible $260 million precinct redevelopment at the Australian National University. For the traditional custodians of this land, ‘Kambri’ has been a meeting place for thousands of years. The name was gifted to the ANU by representatives of the Little Gudgenby River Tribal Council, Buru Ngunawal Aboriginal Corporation, King Brown Tribal Group, and the Ngarigu Currawong Clan.
