Presented by Salon Art Projects and hosted by CDU Art Gallery

Experience some of the best Indigenous contemporary art in Australia at Salon des Refusés.

Since its inception eight years ago, Salon des Refusés has grown in strength with many collectors and institutions eagerly awaiting the exhibition each year. As a companion event to the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award (NATISAA), Salon des Refusés allows the viewer a rare opportunity to compare and discuss the merits of selected and rejected NATSIAA artworks.

To celebrate five years of partnership with CDU Art Gallery, this year’s event will also feature a display of the wonderful artworks acquired from previous Salon exhibitions by Charles Darwin University since 2016.
