DESART PHOTOGRAPHY PRIZE
The Desart Aboriginal Art Workers’ Program provides training, mentoring and skill development leading to employment opportunities for Aboriginal art workers in art centres across Central Australia. TARNANTHI provides an opportunity for the art workers to extend their practice and curate a selection of the photographs, created by themselves as well as other art workers, featured in the Desart Photography Prize over the past four years.
The exhibition will also feature a suite of exceptional prints created at a printmaking workshop held at Cicada Press in Sydney at the University of New South Wales. Participants include four of the Desart photography prize participants as well as two additional art workers.
