Popular annual exhibition returns to CDU Art Gallery

In its fourth year at CDU Art Gallery, the companion exhibition to the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA) opened to the public on 8 August.

The “Salon des Refusés” exhibition kicked off the Darwin Festival and features art works that were entered but not selected for NATSIAA.

Salon des Refusés originally began as an exhibition in Paris in 1863, showing works that had been rejected by the official Paris Salon.

This year the Salon des Refusés features 53 works that show the amazing diversity and quality of Aboriginal art being created in Australia today. 

The exhibition will finish on September 28.
