Natasha Bieniek and Ben Quilty will feature in a new ABC documentary series ‘Finding the Archibald’. As the Archibald celebrates its centenary with an ambitious exhibition, Archie 100, the series honours the artists who have made the Archibald Prize what it is today. In the series, host Rachel Griffiths travels around Australia exploring the history of the prize, uncovering the changes to artistic styles and approaches to portraiture over the course of the last century.
The first episode of ‘Finding the Archibald’ will air 15 June on ABC TV and iview.
