In its seventh iteration in 2020, the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF) is adapting to current circumstances by moving its program online. Organisers anticipate that the interactive digital platform, streaming for 10 days from August 14 to 23, will deliver an equally rich festival experience to an even wider global audience.

CIAF has a history of offering an ethical art marketplace, attracting national and international collectors and curators, commissioning new work and providing pathways for emerging performance artists.

CIAF 2020 – The Cultural Revolution, will comprise a series of live stream presentations, performances, webinars, workshops, community spotlights, virtual gallery exhibitions and conversations with the overarching theme of climate change. Highlights include opening night on Friday 14 August, featuring a community spotlight from across Queensland and the Torres Strait, culminating in a musical performance by Zennith. Online audiences can also look forward to the Annual Art Awards, CIAF’s first ever dedicated theme song, and a special closing ceremony.

A Virtual Gallery showcasing 300 artworks Queensland First Peoples’ artists will run from opening night until 13 September, alongside the additional exhibition Undercurrents, showing online as well as on select dates at Tanks Arts Centre, Cairns.
