Who better to hear from about portraiture than the muse and subject of countless portraits, Wendy Whiteley? In conversation with Jonathan Biggins, Wendy joins us to reflect on the late Brett Whiteley’s Archibald Prize-winning portraits and to consider the impact that a prize or winning can have on the career of an up-and-coming artist. Speaking of up and coming, hear impressive new talent in action in our Sydney Students Speak series over the coming weeks, as art-school and university students discuss their preferred painted faces. And don’t miss the last week of Miriam Lieberman’s beautiful music performances.
