Archie 100: A Century of the Archibald Prize
Archie 100: A Century of the Archibald Prize accompanies an exhibition exploring the rich history of the Archibald Prize through 100 artworks. Arranged thematically, these works reflect not just how artistic styles and approaches to portraiture have changed over time but how the Archibald Prize reflects our society.
Resulting from many years of research for lost portraits, Archie 100 includes paintings from the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ collection as well as works from libraries, galleries and museums across Australia and internationally. Some have not been exhibited since they first were seen in the Archibald Prize.
