Awarded to the best painting of a notable Australian – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists – the Archibald Prize is a who’s who of Australian culture.
This year, see the winning portrait by Del Kathryn Barton of Hugo Weaving alongside paintings of personalities including Toni Collette, Naomi Watts, Anthony Mundine and Asher Keddie.
Finalists include leading artists such as Imants Tillers, Wendy Sharpe and Jasper Knight, as well as emerging talents of the Australian arts scene.
It’s the exhibition where everyone gets to be a critic. Visit the exhibition and vote for your favourite portrait in the People’s Choice Award.
Visit on a Wednesday evening for Art After Hours and get up close and personal with the artists and sitters as they share their stories.
