2018 Archibald Prize
18 Apr - 16 June 2019
Gallery 1 & 2

Ticketed Gala Event: 5:30pm Wednesday 17 April 2019

Awarded to the best painting of a notable Australian, the Archibald Prize is a who’s who of Australian culture, from politicians to celebrities and from sporting heroes to artists.

Prestigious and controversial, the Archibald Prize is Australia’s foremost portraiture prize. The Archibald Prize awards $100,000 prize money for the winning artist.

In its 97th year, the Archibald Prize has been held annually since 1921. An open competition, the Archibald Prize is judged by the trustees of the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Entries to the Archibald Prize must be painted in the past year from at least one live sitting.

The Gallery will be launching Auslan led tours, by tour guide and native Auslan speaker Sigrid Macdonald, during the Archibald Prize, and will then continue monthly. Contact the Gallery for details.
