About this Curation

Huge congratulations to the 5 artists featured in this curation, who have just been announced as finalists in this year's Archibald Prize!
.
Exhibited annually at the Art Gallery of NSW, the Archibald Prize is often referred to as the exhibition that stops a nation. Nearly everyone has an opinion about which portrait is most deserving of the $100,000 prize!
.
The exhibition runs 11 May – 8 September 2019, followed by a tour, and the winner is announced on 10 May.
Keep those fingers crossed for our artists!
