Desert Mob 2022
Desart Presents Desert Mob.
Desert Mob is an event of national significance, representing the most comprehensive survey of contemporary Aboriginal art by artists from Desart-member art centres from the desert regions and communities of the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.
Desert Mob 2022 will be a vibrant celebration where artists and audiences converge on the Araluen Arts Centre in Mparntwe (Alice Springs).
From September 1 - 7 Desart is presenting Art Centres On Screen; a powerful collection of story-telling direct from the desert with artists sharing their personal histories, art and community.
Opening on September 8 the Desert Mob Exhibition will feature hundreds of new, innovative artworks from emerging and established artists who continue to transform and revolutionise arts and cultural expression.
Desert Mob Marketplace on September 10 is a large affordable buzzing art market, bringing together paintings, punu, ceramics, Tjanpi weaving, sculpture, clothing, jewellery, textiles and homewares from Aboriginal owned art centres across Central Australia.
Buying work at the Desert Mob Exhibition and Marketplace ensures the ethical purchasing of art with all income going to art centres.
Desert Mob 2022 is an unmissable opportunity to experience and share in the art, stories and vitality of the world’s richest living culture.
