On 2 September, Cocky & Pompous (aka Paul McDermott and Paul Livingston) kick off Late night laughs – our new series featuring some of Australia’s funniest comedians, in association with the Archibald Prize and the Sydney Fringe Festival. While the tone is far more serious in the Belgian film Daens, which provides the latest portrait of social and political struggle in our film series Wild in the streets.
Over the years, the Gallery has acquired a significant number of artworks from the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prize competitions for the collection, a small selection of which are currently on display.
Explore a world of colour and creativity these September school holidays with free performances, music, film, artmaking activities and tours.
The winners have been announced in our Young Archie 2015 competition, which invited budding artists between the ages of 5 and 18 to submit a portrait.
Find out more about the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes – including entry information – and explore the finalists and winners year by year.
Extended by popular demand – excerpts from entries into the Sydney Modern Project competition are now on display until 27 September at the Gallery.
The range of tours on offer includes regular free guided tours of the Gallery and exhibitions, including for Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese and Korean speakers.
Rarely screened cinema classics, important documentaries, shorts and experimental films… the Gallery presents a regular film program.
