The Archibald Prize always stirs up debate over the paintings selected and over those that win. However it can be argued that the real story behind the prize lies not in those selected nor in who wins, but rather in the artworks that are never shown.

This year, Gallery V will showcase portraits by a number of leading artists that submitted to and were refused by the Archibald, including Ted Blackall, Shirley Peters, Chris Wake, Jo Palaitis and Bernd Heinrich. So what's the real story? Take a look at
V Portraits on your way up the hill to AGNSW and judge for yourself.
