The launch of Tarnanthi: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art is celebrated with Adelaide’s first national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Fair.
Hosted by Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, and showcasing over 40 art centres from across Australia, the 2015 Tarnanthi Art Fair enables audiences to engage directly with artists and art centres. With works of art ranging in price from $50 to over $10,000, visitors to the art fair can purchase ethically sourced works ensuring profits are returned to the artists and their communities.
