Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair 2022

From 5 to 7 August, the vibrance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture will be celebrated on Larrakia Country during the sixteenth Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair. This year, the spectacular showcase of art, fashion, and design by leading First Nations artists and designers can be experienced in person at the Darwin Convention Centre and online.

An array of artworks made from a variety of media will provide art lovers and collectors with the opportunity to ethically purchase works directly from over seventy Art Centres. There is time to meet the artists, hear about their arts practices, stories of culture, history, and heritage, and participate in the program of masterclasses, talks, and demonstrations. Special events include the Country To Couture fashion runway and National Indigenous Fashion Awards.
