Our country’s most irreverent and outspoken brand – MAMBO – has turned 30 years old and is celebrating with the MAMBO: 30 Years of Shelf-Indulgence art exhibition at the newly opened aMBUSH Gallery at Central Park, The Living Mall. The exhibition is now open and free to the public until Sunday, 26 April.
Following the huge success of the exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, which saw the largest recorded number of attendees throughout the Ian Potter Centre to date, the brand is excited to announce it will continue the celebration with a retrospective display of original artwork since 1984, including posters, surfboards, inflatables, in-store display units, and a 30-year timeline.
While taking a walk down memory lane, guests can experience the opening weekend with a free ‘Hit+Run Australia’ t-shirt screening station with six designs from Mambo artists such as Ben Brown, Travis Price and Vanderlism, for attendees to take home a piece of one-of-a-kind Mambo memorabilia. There will be 200 tees printed on the day starting from 12:30pm.
Guests will also be welcome to a special panel discussion, Adding Insult to Imagery, with Mambo founder Dare Jennings, Wayne Golding (art director), Reg Mombassa (artist and musician) and Eddie Zammit (founder of T-world Journal). The panel discussion will take place in the event space starting immediately at 1:30pm.
Both activities are free to the public with access to Central Park near Central Station on Broadway. Central Park’s shopping and dining retailers will also be open until 8pm, with the Dining District trading late for dinner and drinks.
