Real Refuses: THE DEMOCRATIC ARCHIBALD PRIZE !

  • GALA OPENING: Saturday 10th April 2010, 5-8pm
    (includes the “People’s Choice Award”)
  • RUNS TO: Sunday 25 April TAP GALLERY,  278 Palmer Street, Darlinghurst
    Saturday 10th April marks the 14th Anniversary of Australia’s largest Art “non” Event – Real Refuses – where artists not selected for the ARCHIBALD, WYNNE, SULMAN, and DOUG MORAN Art Prizes exhibit their work at TAP Gallery in Darlinghurst to win the popular “People’s Choice Award”, selected by the public on the night.
    Real Refuses has become firmly established as part of the “Archibald Season”.
    While it is an exhibition of rejected artwork, it is much more than that…
    It is about giving a fair go to all the artists involved in Australia’s largest art events.
    Not everyone can win an Archibald but here everyone can exhibit along side their peers. (You’ll find past winners of Australia’s biggest art prizes here as well!)
     
    In the past an extraordinary range of subjects from the NSW Premier, Mayor of Willoughby, Anthony Mundeen, Tony Abbott, Leo Sawyer, the then Prime Minister John Howard,  Madame Lash, Elizabeth Cummings, Professor Bruce James Brew, and Jaiwei, a winner of the Sulman.
