Archie Around Australia Hits Bathurst
In 2021 the Archibald prize turned 100. Over the last year, the exhibition Archie 100: A Century of the Archibald Prize, has been slowly making its way around the country.
It’s now New South Wales’ turn, with the exhibition set to open at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery on January 26, until March 26, 2023.
The curator of the Archie 100 exhibition Natalie Wilson joined the Thursday Daily.
