Not hung up! The history of the Salon des Refusés

Wednesday 21 September 4.30 – 6pm

Dr Wendy Garden, Curator of Australian Art, Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory will talk about the history of success, rejection and scandal that surrounds art prizes dating back to the Paris Salon of 1863 and the popularity of the Salon des Refusés (or ‘exhibition of rejects’). When the jury for the Paris Salon rejected two-thirds of the paintings submitted they unwittingly initiated an alternative exhibition under the title Salon des Refusés. Since 1994 in Australia, art not selected for the well-known Archibald Prize competes to be featured in the Bald Archy Prize. For the fourth year, the popular Salon des Refusés features artworks not selected for the prestigious National and Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Art Award. Viva the salon hang! Refreshments will be served.
