Archibald Prize Exhibition 2018

2018 Archibald Prize
22 September 2018 to 18 November 2018

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 2018 Archibald Prize.

To view the winners and finalists for 2018, visit Art Gallery of New South Wales.

The 2018 Archibald Prize is an Art Gallery of New South Wales touring exhibition and is supported by Presenting partner ANZ.
