Mambo: Art Irritates Life (ATOM study guide)

SKU: SG1352

    It was back in the days when artwork could get you into trouble. Mambo was a collective of comical and contrary graphic artists that specialised in laconic Australian humour. They ridiculed and sent up everything, including themselves, and became the nation’s most popular art movement of the 1990s. Mambo began in a garage in inner Sydney, and fifteen years later grew in prominence to be the obvious choice to represent Australian culture of irreverence at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

    The story of Mambo is about art connecting with a lot of people, about how we celebrated a bunch of troublemakers.
