Tarnanthi Festival

20 Oct 2023 – 21 Jan 2024

The statewide Tarnanthi Festival returns in 2023, with exhibitions at AGSA and at dozens of partner venues across Adelaide and around South Australia.

Acclaimed across Australia, the Tarnanthi Festival showcases the latest contemporary works by hundreds of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from across the continent. As the central point of the Festival, AGSA presents a nationwide survey that promises ambitious and innovative contemporary art combined with deep reflection on unwavering cultural connections.

In addition, the popular Tarnanthi Art Fair returns as a physical event in 2023 – providing a unique opportunity to meet First Nations artists, learn about their world and ideas, and buy works of art.

The Tarnanthi Festival is an occasion for people to experience Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in all its diversity. The full program includes artist and curator talks, workshops, film, music and performances.

Opening weekend, 20-22 October, in person, presented at Art Gallery of South Australia.
