Principal Partner BHP Billiton

Building on the popular and critical success of the 2015 Festival, TARNANTHI returns in 2017, presenting the art of Australia’s rich and diverse Indigenous cultures on an unprecedented scale. A platform for important stories from across the country to be seen and heard, TARNANTHI offers an unmissable opportunity to experience the best of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.

BHP Billiton and the Government of South Australia’s further investment in TARNANTHI will see this celebrated Festival continue for an additional five years, until 2021. Presented by the Art Gallery of South Australia, TARNANTHI will be an annual, city-wide festival, with a major biennial offering at the Art Gallery from 2017.

'TARNANTHI has shed light on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture in a way that we have never seen before'.
