Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair

Friday 11 - Sunday 13 August, 2017

The annual event serves as a platform to showcase the works of more than 2000 artists, with thousands of traditional and contemporary pieces available to purchase.

This year the fair returns to the Darwin Convention Centre from Friday 11 August to Sunday 13 August featuring film, fashion and a panel discussion as part of an expanded program that was piloted in 2016.

Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair has built a reputation as the most prestigious and largest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art fair the world, with international art collectors referring to the fair as the 'Art Basel' of Australian Indigenous art.

DAAF will continue its famed art workshops with new children's activity stations available this year, providing kids (and the young at heart!) with a range of hands-on activities to explore stories and art styles.
