Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2017
29 Jul – 22 Oct 2017
Location: Major exhibition gallery
The Archibald Prize, first awarded in 1921 for the best portrait painting, is Australia’s favourite art award. 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.
Each year, the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW judge the Archibald and Wynne, and invite an artist to judge the Sulman. The 2017 judge is Tony Albert.
Visit the exhibition to vote for your favourite portrait in the People’s Choice award before voting closes on 2 October and see the work of budding artists aged 5-18 on display in the Young Archies.
Available online: view the artworks and read the labels. And for the Archibald, listen to audio labels and watch Auslan video with captions.
