In November 2017, the second edition of the Tarnanthi Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art opened at the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA), following a very successful inaugural Tarnanthi Festival in 2015 (reviewed by Collage co-founder Josephine Boult). Collage writer Matilda Handsley-Davis sat down with Nici Cumpston, AGSA’s Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art and Artistic Director of Tarnanthi, to discuss selected works and themes from Tarnanthi at the Gallery, the Festival’s major exhibition hosted at AGSA.
