The Archibald Prize brings out the art critic in everyone, including some of Australia’s funniest comedians. Tonight, join Andy Saunders as he brings his laugh-out-loud, tongue-in-cheek humour to critique the famous art prize and the people we love to see in paint. Get another perspective on art from the young voices in our Sydney students speak series. Then, enjoy live music with The World According to James, led by one of Australia’s pre-eminent jazz musicians James Greening.
