It used to be that the Archibald Prize seemed to be predominantly a picture gallery of white men in suits, and sometimes their wives and daughters, but the prize - like the country it reflects - has been slowly changing.
The Brett Whiteley Studio at 2 Raper Street, Surry Hills was the workplace and home of one of Australia’s most celebrated artists. It’s open to the public Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, 10am-4pm, and to booked education groups on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
