The Lester Art Prize Retrospective

The Lester Prize Portraiture Retrospective

The Black Swan Years is an exhibition exploring the history of The Lester Prize, and its emergence as one of Australia’s most prestigious portraiture prizes.

Beginning in 2007, the Lester Prize aims to provide Western Australia with the opportunity to engage with the best of the portraiture artform each year, in a format that puts the artists and community front-and-centre.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with The City of Perth and is hosted at the Town Hall.
