The bustling MarketPlace atmosphere provides an opportunity for buyers to interact directly with artists and art centre staff and to purchase high-quality works of art for under $500. Starting at 10 am, you have to be in quick to make sure you don’t miss out!

The Desert Mob Symposium

This Symposium brings artists from the Desart member art centres together with special guests for a day of inspiring stories. It offers audiences a window into the Aboriginal art centre world and the artists at its centre, and it is a fantastic forum for connecting artists with existing and new audiences. The Symposium held on the Friday of Desert Mob weekend and is a free, ticketed event.

About Desert Mob

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).
