Eagerly anticipated by artists and audiences alike, this annual event never ceases to create lively debate amongst the arts community and wider public. Each year, the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW judge the Archibald and Wynne Prizes, and invite an artist to judge the Sulman Prize. One of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious art prizes, the Archibald is awarded to the best portrait painting, preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in art, letters, science or politics. The Wynne is awarded to the best landscape painting of Australian scenery, or figure sculpture, while the Sulman is given to the best subject painting, genre painting or mural project in oil, acrylic, watercolour or mixed media.

Pop to popism explores the dynamic engagement of art with popular culture from the mid 1950s to the mid 1980s. It begins with the emergence of pop art in Britain, Europe and America, moving through the key years of high pop in the 1960s and early 70s including a substantial Australian component, to a new generation of artists who began exhibiting in the late 1970s and developed a postmodern approach to pop culture.
