Cop An Archibald Winner’s Work For Just $100 At The Incognito Art Show

Sydney’s Incognito Art Show is making a return this July with several original works from Archibald Prize winners, and 15,000 others crafted by notable Aussie talents — each one to be sold for a fixed price of $100.

For the uninitiated, this not-for-profit exhibit accepts A5-sized submissions from amateur and professional artists alike, with a crucial twist to level the playing field for all parties involved: the identity of an artwork’s artist is only revealed after the purchase.

Simply put, one has a fair-to-decent chance of acquiring elite work from Australia’s most celebrated names — or at the very least, something that tickles your taste from an up-and-coming artist — for not a lot of money.

And, to further emphasise the democratic spirit of the Incognito Art Show, a ‘first come, first served’ policy is enforced; with the bidding process removed to give aspiring collectors a fair shake at obtaining something good. Even if they don’t have a war chest of a budget.

All proceeds will go towards two arts-based organisations — Studio A, which provides professional development for artists with intellectual disabilities; and We Are Studios, a disability-led (and fully inclusive) studio that aims to empowers talent.

In Australia, the Incognito Art Show is a relatively new premise, having only debuted back in 2021. The concept has been piloted to great success elsewhere in the world; most prolifically in Ireland, where its newest edition will raise funds for the Jack & Fill Foundation.

“Incognito is now a key feature of the Australian art scene,” said Co-Founder David Liston.

“Having 15,000 artworks to sell is a big task, but speaks to the enthusiasm artists have for Incognito.”

Co-Founder Laura Jones added: “Incognito is a fun and inclusive way to enliven the arts scene. Both Studio A and We Are Studios are organisations that work tirelessly to support artists. Their artists contribute immensely to arts, culture, and the greater community.”

“I’m so grateful to be involved and I encourage artists to register.”

The Incognito Art Show is scheduled to occur from July 13th-14th, 2024 at 410 Oxford Street, Paddington NSW 2021. 3,000 artworks are expected to sell across this two-day in-person event, with the remaining 12,000 to be available for purchase online from July 18th, 2024.
