Desert Mob 2018
September 6 @ 5:30 pm - October 21 @ 4:00 pm
Presented by Araluen Arts Centre and Desart
Desert Mob is one of the most significant expressions of Aboriginal art and culture in the nation, and one of its most anticipated and extraordinary events. Held annually since 1991, the Desert Mob Exhibition, Symposium and MarketPlace are a powerful articulation of culture, country and contemporary desert life by artists from Desart-member art centres across the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia. The most immediate interface between Aboriginal art and artists from remote desert communities and the wider world, Desert Mob is celebratory, a unique opportunity for artists and audience to come together and share this rich and dynamic culture.
Exhibition Opening: Thursday 6 September, 5.30pm
Presenting hundreds of new works, chosen by the artists and art centres for inclusion, the Desert Mob 2018 exhibition is an overwhelming and exhilarating testament to traditional and contemporary practice, experimentation and innovation in Aboriginal art from the desert, now!
