Tarnanthi 2023 is an up-to-the-minute survey of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, featuring ambitious and innovative works of art by artists from around the nation. The Tarnanthi 2023 catalogue showcases the ambitious, innovative and up-to-the-minute works of art exhibited at the acclaimed Tarnanthi Festival of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.
Across its 264 pages, full-colour images reveal the rich beauty and material diversity of works presented at the 2023 Tarnanthi Festival, held at the Art Gallery of South Australia and at dozens of partner exhibitions across Adelaide and around South Australia. The book also contains more than fifty essays from artists, curators and art experts, which describe and illuminate each artistic project in the festival.
Among the highlights of Tarnanthi 2023 are the first survey exhibition of works by wry portraitist Vincent Namatjira, the subtle moods of Bugai Whyoulter’s desert landscapes, Kunmanara (Ngilan) Dodd’s large-scale forms made from fencing wire and wool, Wally Wilfred’s vibrant works on paper and the Regional Tarnanthi exhibition Saltbush Country.
Handsomely illustrated and deeply informative, this publication is a must-have for lovers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and a perfect memento of one of Australia’s foremost First Nations cultural events.
