Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art – Tarnanthi
12 Oct 2017
Tarnanthi is a Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art. Tarnanthi, pronounced tar-nan-dee, is a Kaurna word from the traditional owners of the Adelaide Plains. It means to come forth or appear – like the sun and the first emergence of light. For many cultures, first light signifies new beginnings.
Building on the popular and critical success of the 2015 Festival, TARNANTHI returns in 2017, presenting the art of Australia’s oldest living culture on an unprecedented scale. A platform for artists from across the country to share important stories, TARNANTHI sheds new light on contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.
It will be officially launched Thursday 12 October, 5.30pm at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Public event, all are welcome.
This weekend there will be an Arts Fair at Tandanya- https://www.tarnanthi.com.au/events/tarnanthi-art-fair/
