Arlo Montford's practice brings large scale interactive installations paired with sound, video and animation to the gallery.  His work assaults our individual and collective memories of all things art history through the lens of the contemporary.  Amusing, strange and laden with references, his films engage the darker side of our political and social histories through the construct of the art institution and the seminal works held within.  This survey exhibition brings together several video works stitching together a lesson in time, place and art history and shows a gradual distillation and culmination of his ideas to date.

Mountford completed a major commission for the National Gallery of Victoria in 2013 and at the Australian War Memorial in 2012.  Many of the works shown at Goulburn Regional Art Gallery will be exhibited in NSW for the first time.

Awarded to the best painting of a notable Australian, the Archibald Prize is a who's who of Australian culture, from politicians to celebrities and from sporting heroes to artists.  Prestigious and controversial, the Archibald Prize is Australia's foremost portraiture prize.

The Archibald Prize awards $100,000 prize money for the winning artist.  In its 96th year, the Archibald Prize has been held annually since 1921.  An open competition, the Archibald Prize is judged by the trustees of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.  Entries to the Archibald Prize must be painted in the past year from at least one live sitting.

Finalists are exhibited at the Art Gallery of New South Wales before embarking on a year-long regional tour.  In the early years, all entries were hung.

Opening night tickets will be released closer to the exhibition.
