“In a portrait, you have room to have a point of view. The image may not be literally what’s going on, but it’s representative.” – Annie Leibovitz

The Brisbane Portrait Prize is all about celebrating Brisbane portrait artists and their sitters, while encouraging engagement with the arts.

This FREE exhibition is a representation of the times and a reflection on the inner worlds many have had trouble navigating. The portraits are personal stories: stories of struggle, whimsy, melancholy and hope.

ABOUT THE BRISBANE PORTRAIT PRIZE

The Brisbane Portrait Prize is all about celebrating Brisbane portrait artists and their sitters, while encouraging public engagement with the arts. Any artist with a connection to Brisbane is eligible to enter. The sitter must also have a connection with Brisbane.
