Presented by Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair Foundation
Experience the rich diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, design and culture at the 17th Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair (DAAF).
With a reputation as one of the country’s most significant and internationally recognised arts events, DAAF creates a unique opportunity to connect with and ethically purchase artwork directly from over 70 Indigenous owned Art Centres.
This year the Fair returns to Larrakia Country as well as hosting an online store for those unable to attend in person.
Showcasing the work of over 1,500 emerging and established artists and designers, the Fair provides a space to meet and learn from the variety of different cultural groups from across Australia. From Australia’s most remote desert and coastal regions, to rural and urban communities, a wide range of styles, media and products are presented and available for purchase – from paintings on canvas, bark paintings, works on paper including limited edition prints, sculpture, didgeridoos, through to fibre art, textiles, fashion and cultural regalia. Buy your ticket to the VIP Opening Night on Thursday 10 August and be one of the first to purchase from the 2023 Fair collection.
Each day at the Fair, you can immerse yourself in the vibrant Public Program of traditional dance performances, material demonstrations, workshops, children’s activities, artists talks and more.
Come and engage with the contemporary creations of the world’s oldest continuous living cultures.
