Indigenous Art Centres- QLD

Art Centres located in Queensland

A new way of presenting work from Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art centres is the curated exhibition at the Art Fair. The 2019 theme is My Yarn Now, with participating Queensland Indigenous art centres submitting works into the curated exhibition in response to the theme. 

Each art centre has its own unique aesthetic, influenced by the country, stories and experiences of the artists. Collectively, these significant works represent the region, while celebrating the vibrant diversity of artistic perspectives employed to express the way artists see the world today.

About Indigenous Art Centre Alliance (IACA)

IACA, the Indigenous Art Centre Alliance is the peak body that supports and advocates for the community-based Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and cultural centres of Far North Queensland. IACA works under the guidance and direction of a majority Indigenous Management Committee and is a not-for-profit organisation. There are currently 13 member art centres spread across the islands of the Torres Strait, the Gulf of Carpentaria, Cape York and the tropical rainforest and coastal regions of Far North Queensland. 

IACA works to develop and progress the economic development of artists through their art centres, build the profile of Queensland Indigenous art, and assist in the maintenance and celebration of the rich and diverse culture of FNQ Indigenous communities. Of utmost importance to IACA and art centre members is ensuring the highest integrity in the production, documentation and marketing of art created through art centres.
