2017 Archibald Prize

Where Sydney - - Where Now What’s On -

This an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion at the Art Gallery of New South Wales is a joint show of all fi­nal­ists in the Archibald, Wynne and Sul­man Prizes. The Archibald Prize is a por­trait prize awarded to the best paint­ing of a no­table Aus­tralian, and fea­tures a who’s who of Aus­tralian cul­ture, from politi­cians to celebri­ties and from sport­ing he­roes to artists. The Wynne Prize is awarded to the best land­scape paint­ing of Aus­tralian scenery, or fig­ure sculp­ture, while the Sul­man Prize is given to the best sub­ject paint­ing, genre paint­ing or mu­ral project in oil, acrylic, wa­ter­colour or mixed me­dia. This year’s Archibald Prize win­ner is Mitch Cairns’ por­trait of artist Agatha Gothe-snape.
