I recently had a chance to visit the Archibald/Wynne/Sulman and as always was mighitly impressed with the hang. The AGNSW really puts on a good show. One thing I noticed had changed from previous years - the picture labels now included prior exhibition history with the Archibald. They weren't consistent in providing this information, or explicit. They just wove mention of it into the narrative, which is fine. But I'm able to give an explicit count in the table below.

The number of artists who have been selected two or more times in the Sulman is 33.5% - somewhat lower than for the Archibald.

We're going to do two things here - first let's compile a list of the 2024 finalists and see how many times they have been selected in the Sulman Prize. And then we'll take a look at the top multi-finalists for all time. In both instances I've let the nerds in the lab go over the numbers so let's hope they got it right.

Starting with the percentage of finalists that have been in a prior finalist exhibition for the Sulman:

2023 Total Finalists: 44 Re-Entries: 16 Re-Entry Rate: Approximately 36.4%

2024 Total Finalists: 41 Re-Entries: 17 Re-Entry Rate: Approximately 41.5%

The overall figure for all years the years (we don't go back beyond 1990)  is 33.5%
