Gallery Up Late 2020 Archibald Prize

The Gallery is delighted to host a special Up Late event for the opening of the 2020 Archibald Prize. Enjoy live music and a special after-hours viewing with special guest Dr Michael Brand, Director of the Art Gallery of NSW.


Awarded to the best painting of a notable Australian, the Archibald Prize is a who's who of Australian culture, from politicians to celebrities and from sporting heroes to artists. Prestigious and controversial, the Archibald Prize is Australia's foremost portraiture prize. Now in its 99th year, the Archibald Prize has been held annually since 1921. An open competition, the Archibald Prize is judged by the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW. Entries to the Archibald Prize must be painted in the past year from at least one live sitting. Finalists are exhibited at the Art Gallery of New South Wales before embarking on a year-long regional tour.

Due to COVID-19 some events may be operating differently than planned, please contact the event organiser directly to confirm.
