TARNANTHI

In 2015, Adelaide hosted the inaugural TARNANTHI, Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art encompassing a series of exhibitions, public programs, community events and an opening weekend Art Fair.

The Art Fair provided an opportunity to buy works of art directly from art centres and independent artists from across the country, and the Festival’s supporting public programs and community events brought the artists voices and vision to a broad audience of international guests, artists, collectors, curators, students, cultural industry professionals and academics.
Future dates to be announced shortly.
