30 years of shelf-indulgence

Free entry

NGV Australia

Ground Level, NGV Studio

6 Dec 14 – 22 Feb 15

Our country’s most irreverent brand – Mambo – has turned 30 years old. With its idiosyncratic Australian sense of humour and perverse national pride, Mambo has seemingly grown up.

Mambo: 30 years of shelf-indulgence presents all the ideas, key elements and oddities that have made it one of Australia’s most memorable brands. The exhibition sees NGV Studio housing the largest collection of Mambo works ever assembled, ranging from way back in 1984 to the present day, including original artworks, developmental works (some never seen before) and a retrospective of the most-loved pieces produced during its history.

Mambo: 30 years of shelf-indulgence presents some of the finest elements of Mambo’s creative and very distinctive identity.
