Hidden Faces South Wharf

10 Jul 2019

The popular Hidden Faces exhibition has returned to South Wharf, showcasing the best of portrait art at Pan Pacific Melbourne until October 3.

Following the spirit of the French Salon des Refuses, the event features a number of portraits by Victorian artists that were not hung in “official” exhibitions. Most of these paintings were submitted to national portrait prizes, such as the Archibald Prize, but either weren’t featured or were rejected.

This year’s exhibition will showcase works from a number of artists including Raelene Sharp, Hung Fu, Jacquie Blight, John Mandich, Vicki Sullivan, Ron Penrose, Todd Simpson, Janne Kearney, Peter Ferrier, Lisa Wang, Jim van Geet and Steve May among others.

The subjects of the portraits are diverse too, with paintings of performers like Marta Dusseldorp and Ezekiel Ox, sporting icons like Kate Ross and Nathan Lyon, and professors Damien Kingsbury and Jenny Hocking.

“There is something new and different each year and, now in its 18th year, Hidden Faces continues to unveil the amazing portraiture talent in Victoria,” curator Jacqueline Taylor said.

The display will be presented in the lobby at Pan Pacific Melbourne from June 3 to October 3. The exhibition is free.
