Showcasing the very best Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art from around the country, from emerging and established artists.

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

 

The annual exhibition demonstrates 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.

Key dates

“2022 saw us reviewing a vast number of exceptional works, which was incredibly encouraging given the challenges that artists and communities have faced over the last 12 months. We commend all of the artists who have managed to create work during the continuing pandemic, the recent flooding and severe weather events, and the countless challenges faced as individuals, families and communities."
