Tarnanthi at AGSA

Exhibition and Shows

15 Oct 2021 to 30 Jan 2022 Daily Event

Tarnanthi is an annual celebration of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and a flagship program of the Art Gallery of South Australia.

Its format alternates between a statewide festival in one year and a major focus exhibition the following year. Since its inception in 2015, Tarnanthi has placed particular emphasis on the agency of artists and on foregrounding the artist’s voice. It is a rare showcase for the nuanced complexity and radical ingenuity of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, reflecting the strength of First Nations cultures across Australia today.

As the central point of the 2021 statewide Tarnanthi Festival, AGSA presents dozens of new works created through diverse collaborative projects and by individual artists around the country. Building on the success of the memorable 2017 and 2019 festival exhibitions at AGSA, Tarnanthi at AGSA is a nationwide survey that promises ambitious and innovative up-to-the-minute contemporary art combined with deep reflection on unwavering cultural connections.

During Tarnanthi, AGSA will also host an extensive array of talks, tours, performances, workshops, creative activities and student programs, plus themed activities in The Studio.

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