Showcasing the very best Australian Indigenous art from around the country, from emerging and established artists.

The Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA) exhibition captures the attention of the nation, with an inspiring breadth of work from emerging and established artists.

Each year NATSIAA sees an increasing variety of art forms and media, collectively demonstrating the richness and diversity of current contemporary Indigenous artistic practice, and the pre-eminence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices, nationwide, within the visual arts.

MAGNT and Telstra are working through the development of an uplifting reimagined awards and exhibition experience in 2020 for our artists and audiences. Stay tuned for updates.
