Crying In The Leagues Club Exhibition at aMBUSH Gallery Kambri

Exhibition and Shows

3 Oct 2019 to 27 Oct 2019

Crying In The Leagues Club is a compelling artistic examination of male vulnerability in Australian sport from multidisciplinary artist, Samuel Leighton-Dore.

In just his second solo exhibition, Samuel articulates the multi-dimensional and layered role the NRL plays in today’s society, with its unique blend of a traditional masculine power structure and emotional openness. It’s a realm where men are free to express feelings that – beyond the playing field and changerooms – would be looked upon by many as unusual, uncomfortable and unacceptable.

Featuring over 30 works spanning acrylic paintings, ceramics, animation, sound design and LED neon, Samuel presents a domain laden with both contradiction and camaraderie, and explores sport’s potential as a progressive platform for masculinity.

Join the opening night celebrations for Crying In The Leagues Club on Thursday, 3 October from 6-9pm at aMBUSH Gallery. There’ll be music from Captain Earwax and drinks by Capital Brewing.

On Friday, 4 October, Samuel Leighton-Dore will be in the Gallery from 1:00-2:00pm to participate in an Artist Talk. This event is free of charge to the public.
