Gab Titui Indigenous Art Award 2008-2017
Since 2008 the Gab Titui Indigenous Art Award has brought together contemporary works from across the Torres Strait and Northern Peninsula Area in a celebration of the unique cultures and talents of our communities. From humble beginnings, the Gab Titui Indigenous Art Award has become a cornerstone of Gab Titui’s exhibition programme, giving audiences exclusive access to new works by some of our region’s most acclaimed artists and illuminating exciting young and emerging talent.
Through this annual award we celebrate our growing art industry and the individual artists and art centres who contribute to its success through their hard work, innovation and generosity of spirit. Each year we are honoured with a spectacular diversity of works, paying homage to rich cultural traditions, while showcasing contemporary cultural revival and sharing stories of historical and personal significance.
