Tarnanthi Art Fair | Adelaide | 20-22 Oct 2023

Tarnanthi Art Fair 2023

The Art Gallery of South Australia’s popular Tarnanthi Art Fair will be presented as both an in-person and online event in 2023.

Acclaimed as Australia’s leading First Nations art festival, Tarnanthi this year comprises exhibitions at AGSA; a state-wide festival with exhibitions and accompanying events across 27 venues; and the Tarnanthi Art Fair.

Tarnanthi is a platform for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from across the country to share important stories through artistic excellence, illuminating the diversity and depth of art and culture in communities nationwide. It encourages new beginnings by providing artists with opportunities to create significant new work and to extend their practice.

For the first time since 2020, the popular Tarnanthi Art Fair returns in person for three days only, at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre – offering a unique opportunity to meet the artists and buy works of art with 100% of sales going back to artists and art centres. Entry is free.

You can also browse and buy online. 

Importantly, the three-day Art Fair delivers significant economic benefits to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, where art production is a vital source of income. All works are made and sold ethically, and all sale proceeds go directly to the artists and their community-run art centres.
