Archibald 2021 winners

Media release, Art Gallery of New South Wales.

‘In the centenary year of the Archibald, a portrait by Peter Wegner of 100-year-old artist Guy Warren (himself an Archibald winner in 1985) took out the prize’. Portraits by Pat Hoffie and Jude Rae were highly commended.

AGNSW noted, ‘For the first time, there is gender parity for artists selected as Archibald finalists: 26 women and 26 men. Female sitters outnumber the men (although that is not a first).

It is also the first time there have been more works by women than men in the combined Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes exhibition.’

Exhibition dates: 5 June to 26 September 2021
