It also explores the activism in the music of Midnight Oil, Paul Kelly and Yothu Yindi and highlights the strength of women in a traditionally male-dominated scene. Also featured are hard rock bands of Cold Chisel, The Angels and Rose Tattoo.

To manage the capacity of visitors, FREE tickets can be booked online here. In response to COVID-19, the National Portrait Gallery has introduced protocols to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of visitors, staff and volunteers at the exhibition.
