You're invited to the Don't Shoot The Messenger Exhibition Opening Night on Friday 12 March 2021 from 6pm to 8pm AEDT at aMBUSH gallery Kambri, Level 2, Building 153, Kambri Cultural Centre at ANU, Acton ACT. A FREE event, you need to register to attend. Enjoy robust conversation, live music from DJ Chloe Maguire, and complimentary drinks by Capital Brewing and Lerida Estate Wines.

Post Opening Night, the exhibition will be open free of charge to the public until Sunday 11 April (showing daily from 10am-6pm weekdays and 12pm-5pm on weekends). All artworks are for sale. Curated and presented by aMBUSH Gallery, this is an unforgettable multidisciplinary solo exhibition from Sydney-based street artist and Archibald Prize finalist, Luke Cornish (aka E.L.K.) that explores themes of injustice and protest. Come and see firsthand these 54 intentionally confrontational works that hold a mirror up to society, and challenge the audience to think analytically about global issues.

Luke's extraordinary hand-cut photo-realistic stencil works are a no-holds-barred barrage of subject matters and unorthodox artistic materials, including an upside-down figure of Christ on a cross, paper currency from dozens of different countries adorned with confronting images, and all manner of weapons - from riot shields to hunting knives, meat cleavers, swords and cutthroat razors.
