Black Swan Prize for Portraiture 2018

Exhibition and Shows

27 Oct 2018 to 26 Nov 2018

The Black Swan Prize for Portraiture is celebrating its twelfth anniversary in 2018 and its third year at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

40 finalists from across Australia have been chosen from over 500 artists who entered this year’s prestigious prize, the second largest total since ARTrinsic Inc conceived the event 12 years ago.

Amongst this year’s finalists 25 per cent were Western Australian artists, 38 per cent were from Victoria, 28 per cent from New South Wales, with the remaining 9 per cent from South Australia and Tasmania.

Many of the finalists’ works involve subjects that play a significant part in their lives or they have chosen to look within and present a self-portrait.

The finalists’ artworks will be on display at the Art Gallery of Western Australia, in the Centenary Galleries.
