Archibald Prize 2019

Exhibition and Shows

14 Sep 2019 to 5 Nov 2019

TarraWarra Museum of Art is the exclusive Victorian tour venue for the Archibald Prize 2019, Australia’s oldest and most prestigious art award, from 14 September – 5 November.

Presented by the Art Gallery of New South Wales and ANZ, the annual portrait exhibition provides a snapshot of Australian culture – from politicians and celebrities to sporting heroes and authors. Since its inception in 1921, the prize has been awarded to some of Australia’s most important artists, often inciting controversy while chronicling the changing face of Australian society and evolving definitions of portraiture.

Amongst the 51 works in this year’s exhibition are paintings which portray significant Australian subjects including renowned actor David Wenham by Tessa MacKay; director of Queensland Ballet Li Cunxin by Jun Chen; Anh Do’s portrait of artist George Gittoes; Vincent Namatjira’s tribute to his friend and fellow artist Tony Albert; and media commentator Annabel Crabb by Jordan Richardson.

Tuesday to Sunday, 9:30am – 5:00pm.

Open AFL Grand Final public holiday Friday 27 September, Monday 4 November and Melbourne Cup Day Tuesday 5 November.
