IDAIA is focusing on the creation of its new structure to better serve the industry, the artists and the buyers, from 15th November until 30th January 2014. 

* Please note that the Sydney office will reopen on 24 February 2014 however IDAIA’s team can still be contacted by phone, email and skype.*

2013 has proven to be a busy calendar for quality and ethical Australian Indigenous Art, with so many exhibitions, prizes, festivals and art sales organised across the globe. With Corroboree, the new Indigenous Cultural Festival starting this week in Sydney, IDAIA has decided to announce that part of its activities are put on hold until the end of January 2014.

More than ever IDAIA’s cause is to develop the appreciation, visibility and presence of the ethical and curatorial Australian Indigenous contemporary art, working alongside the existing like-minded stakeholders and organisations. But since its creation in 2008, IDAIA has operated with very limited funding and we feel it is the most appropriate time to switch to a new and stronger structure that will help IDAIA to better serve all the actors involved in the Australian Aboriginal Art sector.


What will happen?

Our website and social media platforms are not to be updated as often as usual from 15th November until 30th January 2014, and there will be no newsletter in December. We apologize for any inconvenience but IDAIA will be back in 2014 with more educational events, more exhibitions and new developments.

Of course, we remain available for any questions, project proposals and are happy to help with artworks acquisitions.


We take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the years and as always, IDAIA is delighted to hear from its supporters.

To help us craft our strategic plan 2014-2018, we would be grateful if you could take a couple of minutes to answer the following questions:
