The Tarnanthi 2021 festival is an opportunity to experience Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in all its diversity.

As the main venue for the Tarnanthi festival, AGSA presents dozens of new works from around the country, created by individual artists and through collaborative projects. This nationwide survey of First Nations art promises ambitious, innovative and up-to-the-minute contemporary works created through deep reflection on unwavering cultural connections.

In addition, dozens of partner venues around Adelaide and across South Australia present diverse and original exhibitions of works by hundreds of First Nations artists. Exhibitions and displays feature paintings, sculpture, installations, fashion, weaving, ceramics, video screenings in public spaces, and more.

The Tarnanthi 2021 program also includes an extensive array of talks, tours, music and cultural performances, workshops, creative activities and student programs, plus themed activities in The Studio at AGSA.

The complete Tarnanthi program will be released nearer the festival opening date.

Tarnanthi is presented by the Art Gallery of South Australia with Principal Partner BHP and support from the Government of South Australia
