Salon des Refuses 2020

The Salon des Refuses was initiated by the S.H. Ervin Gallery in 1992 in response to the large number of works entered into the Archibald Prize which were not selected for display in the official exhibition. The Archibald Prize is one of Australia's most high profile and respected awards which attracts hundreds of entries each year and the S.H. Ervin Gallery's 'alternative' selection has become a much-anticipated feature of the Sydney scene.Each year our panel is invited to go behind the scenes of the judging process for the annual Archibald Prize for portraiture and Wynne Prize for landscape painting and figure sculpture at the Art Gallery of New South Wales- to select an exhibition from the many hundreds of works entered in both prizes but not chosen for the official award exhibition.The Salon des Refuses exhibition at the S.H. Ervin Gallery has established an excellent reputation that rivals the selections in the 'official' exhibition- with works selected for quality- diversity- humour and experimentation- and which examine contemporary art practices- different approaches to portraiture and responses to the landscape.Visitors can vote in the Holding Redlich People's Choice Award.Covid-Safe informationWe are registered as a Covid Safe business and have new safety measures.All visitors are required to sign in on arrival if they do not have pre-booked tickets.
