Since its inception in 1991, Desert Mob has fostered and charted the incredible rise of Aboriginal art from the desert to its current eminent position as one of the most important art movements and forms of cultural expression in the world. Desert Mob is an event of national significance, representing the most comprehensive survey of contemporary Aboriginal art by artists from Desart-member art centres from the desert regions and communities of the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.

Desert Mob 2022 will be vibrant celebration where artists and audiences converge on the Araluen Arts Centre in Mparntwe (Alice Springs). It will feature hundreds of new, innovative artworks from emerging and established artists; the Desert Mob online gallery, a virtual symposium of powerful projects, presentations and artist talks; an affordable art marketplace supporting ethical purchasing from Aboriginal owned art centres, and associated events at venues across Mparntwe. Desert Mob 2022 is an unmissable opportunity to experience and share in the art, stories and vitality of the world’s richest living culture.
