Archibald Prize Exhibition 2017

Archibald Prize 2017
28 October to 10 December 2017

First awarded in 1921, the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ Archibald Prize is Australia’s favourite art award, and one of its most prestigious.

Awarded to the best portrait painting, it’s a who’s who of Australian culture, with subjects often including politicians, celebrities, sporting heroes, authors and artists.

Since its inception, the Archibald Prize has been engaging art enthusiasts, often stirring up controversy and always challenging the way we see ourselves and our society. Over the years, the prize has been awarded to many of Australia’s most prominent artists. The Geelong Gallery is delighted to be the exclusive Victorian venue for the Archibald Prize 2017.

Access tours will be available during Geelong Gallery's hosting of the 2017 and 2018 Archibald Prize.

For further information about the programs available and times please contact: Public Program and Learn Coordinator, Elishia at elishia@geelonggallery.org.au or Volunteer Coordinator, Ona at ona@geelonggallery.org.au.

The Archibald Prize 2017 is an Art Gallery of New South Wales touring exhibition and is supported by Principal sponsor ANZ.

Winner: Archibald Prize 2017


Mitch Cairns

Title: Agatha Gothe-Snape
Medium: oil on linen
Dimensions: 140.5 x 125 cm

Agatha Gothe-Snape is an artist whose work addresses the slippery nature of how we read and understand contemporary art and culture. It is perhaps best characterised by her rigorous conceptual enquiry and openness of form. She has achieved significant recognition both in Australia and internationally. Her work was recently seen in the 20th Biennale of Sydney and The National: new Australian art. Earlier this year, she had a solo exhibition at the prestigious Mori Art Museum in Tokyo – a first for an Australian artist.

‘In this painting, Agatha is both an active subject and a recalcitrant muse embracing and resisting simultaneously any idea of what it is to be fixed. Ultimately this is what is most attractive about Agatha. She embodies an uncompromising agency whilst having the grace to accept the ready complications inherent within our life as artists,’ says Mitch Cairns.

‘I composed this portrait with love in the full knowledge of its inevitable and palpable quake.’

Born in Camden, NSW in 1984, Cairns is a graduate of the National Art School and was the recipient of the 2012 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship. This is his fourth time in the Archibald Prize.
