Coral Expeditions and Cairns Indigenous Art Fair Continue Partnership

Coral Expeditions Ship

Coral Expeditions will remain a major partner of the Collectors and Curators program at the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair for the sixth straight year in 2022, according to a press release.

Through this collaboration, art buyers and gallery curators from major national and international institutions can travel on the Coral Expeditions ships to discover the artistic heritage of remote communities.

Starting from September 2022, guests will encounter ancient art, culture, and natural beauty on a series of Cape York, Arnhem Land, and Torres Strait expeditions, as per the company.

Highlights of these voyages include visits to Stanley Island, Pajinka, Badu, Moa Islands, and Tiwi Islands, where guests can buy art directly from the source and visit art centers.

”Leading up to CIAF and the prospect of welcoming visitors back, it is timely to recognize and acknowledge our long and mutually beneficial relationship with Coral Expeditions,” said Janina Harding, artistic director, CIAF. “It’s always heart-warming to see Coral Expeditions staff take advantage of the immersive aspect of CIAF by really getting to know artists and their work.”

“Over the years, our partnership with CIAF has introduced us to special artists and we greatly value these connections, through which we have purchased over 70 unique artworks that are proudly on permanent display onboard our fleet,” commented Jeff Gillies, commercial director, Coral Expeditions. “We look forward to supporting and celebrating the arts and culture of North Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities throughout the year.”
