Australia’s oldest and most-loved portrait prize is celebrating 100 years with its very own retrospective exhibition.

Presented alongside Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2021, this landmark event Archie 100 will delve deep into the rich history of the famous prize, revealing the fascinating behind-the-scenes stories of more than 100 artworks. 

Celebrating a century of capturing people from all walks of life, from famous faces to local heroes, the carefully curated collection has artworks from every decade. The exhibition is arranged thematically, to highlight how artistic styles and approaches to portraiture have changed over time while also reflecting on the changing face of our nation.

Having spent many years tracking down the portraits, Archie 100 includes paintings from the Gallery’s collection as well as works from libraries, galleries and museums across Australia and New Zealand, as well as private collections here and overseas.

The exhibition will tour nationally from November 2021.
