Desert Mob 2019
September 5 @ 5:30 pm - October 22 @ 4:00 pm
Presented by the Araluen Arts Centre and Desart
Presented in partnership with Desart, Desert Mob is an event of national significance, representing the most comprehensive survey of contemporary Aboriginal art by artists from across the desert regions and communities of Central Australia. After record-breaking audience attendances and artwork sales in 2018, this 29-year–strong event remains as vital and vibrant as ever.
In 2019, the Desert Mob Exhibition, Symposium and MarketPlace continues to document and celebrate the dynamic shifts of one of the world’s most important art movements, with artists from Desart member art centres across the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia converging on Mparntwe (Alice Springs).
Through hundreds of new works by emerging and established artists, powerful projects and presentations, an affordable art market and associated satellite events across the opening days, Desert Mob 2019 is a unique and unmissable opportunity to experience the important stories and expression of one the oldest and richest, living cultures.
