Event Details

Free film screening to mark 100 years of the Archibald Prize.

Looby is a film about the eponymous Australian artist Keith Looby. Keith Looby won many major awards, including (in controversial circumstances) the Archibald Prize.

The Archibald Prize always creates much discussion about portraiture. Looby adds personality and politics to the mix. Among other things, the film delves into the painter’s focus on Indigenous history and trauma at a time when Australian institutions were of a “history began with the First Fleet” mindset.

Documentary Screening followed by producer Q&A
