2009 Blunt

The Archibald Prize is a artistic event of some repute and many an aspiring artist may hold hopes of attaining a start in such an event.Portraiture, is an artistic favourite. Long considered a standard ‘rite of passage’ amongst artists and audiences alike, Roland Nancarrow and Dominic Johns sought to adapt the ‘Archibald’ to bring portraiture ‘back to its roots’.

2009 saw the BLUNT enter its 3rd year of fun and frivolity where artists and even the odd curator get BLUNT with each other. The perpetual trophy will be unleashed at this year’s event.
