Presented by Salon Art Projects

Every August, Salon Art Projects presents the Salon des Refusés, an exhibition of works submitted but not accepted into the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA). Its quality demonstrates the superb standard of art being created by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists nationwide, and it also provides valuable insight into where the movement has come from, and where it is heading.

Ten years ago the first Salon des Refusés burst onto the walls. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of this now must-see exhibition, Salon Art Projects are echoing the very first event by hosting it in an abandoned ice making factory on the outskirts of Darwin’s CBD.
