Truth, Power and a Free Press

Exhibition and Shows

15 Nov 2019 to 12 Nov 2021

Media can shine a light into places where truth is hidden. It exposes information and holds power to account, but it is as a source of trusted information that is most critical to the health of our democracy.

Can you tell the truth?

Truth, Power and a Free Press is our new permanent exhibition that begins a conversation about media and the issues affecting our democracy.

See objects from Australia’s media history brought together for the first time and hear extraordinary stories from those on the front line for the battle for truth.

Don’t miss this compelling exhibition on now at MoAD.
