By Autumn 2011 and Autumn 2012

For this two-part project, titled ‘Scenes from an Exhibition’, ARTAND Australia invited Kevin Connor to document through drawing the inner workings of Sydney’s Art Gallery of New South Wales as it hosted the annual Archibald Prize exhibition. Connor’s drawings, in Issues 48.3, Autumn 2011, and 49.3, Autumn 2012, depict the people and processes behind the scenes of this popular prize.
