Tarnanthi Artist Portraits

Tarnanthi is  the Art Gallery of South Australia’s annual Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Festival. Tarnanthi includes exhibitions, an annual art fair, artist talks, performances, workshops and a groundbreaking education program.

Each year since the festival’s inception in 2015,  Closer has worked with AGSA to create a series of Artist Portraits. These portraits highlight Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from across the country, and helps to further share their art practice and stories, illuminating the diversity and depth of art and culture in communities nationwide. The Tarnanthi portraits are exhibited as part of the exhibition each year and can be viewed as a collection here.
