Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair

Artists, curators, gallerists and art lovers are heading north this month for the 12th ‘Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair’ (DAAF) at Darwin Convention Centre, 10 to 12 August. The fair will run public events from performances to story telling and children’s workshops in collaboration with artists from the Torres Strait, APY Lands, Arnhem Land, Savannah and coastal regions, as well as a fashion show of wearable art ‘From Country to Couture’ at Sky City. DAAF’s participating art centres include Tjarlirli Art, Warlukurlangu Artists, UMI Arts, Maningrida Arts & Culture, Baluk Arts and Babbarra Women’s Centre to name a few. The Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory will host artist demonstrations; audiences are encouraged to hop between the museum and DAAF on a free shuttle bus!
