RAFT artspace is committed to showing Indigenous work in the context of Contemporary art in a program that includes other Contemporary art. Founded in Darwin in 2001 by Dallas Gold, RAFT presented more than 150 exhibitions there, before relocating in 2010 to Alice Springs. In 2016 RAFT expanded to Hobart, forming RAFT south.
The formation of RAFT was prompted by actual events on the ground, which lead to the development of a new and ever evolving visual language for Contemporary Indigenous expression. In response, the exhibition program celebrates difference and shows Aboriginal art as a movement in art in a dialogue with other forms of Contemporary art and foregrounds influences in both directions.
