ARTEXPRESS 2014 brings together a selection of artworks produced by exceptionally talented teenage artists. This year there are 41 students represented at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the principal venue for ARTEXPRESS.

Drawn from the most outstanding works submitted for the 2013 NSW Higher School Certificate Visual Arts examination, ARTEXPRESS provides insights into students’ creativity and the issues and ideas that are important to them. The work of the 41 students has been selected from over 9500 who sat the HSC Visual Arts examination in 2013.

Presenting the independent voice of young people, ARTEXPRESS showcases a wonderful range of creativity in diverse media including painting, drawing, photomedia, printmaking, textiles, ceramics, graphic design, time-based forms and sculpture. The Art Gallery of NSW, one of Australia’s major art museums, provides students with the opportunity for their work to be exhibited to a large and diverse audience.

Leeanne Carr, coordinator of secondary education programs at the Art Gallery of NSW, says:

‘ARTEXPRESS is a highlight of the Gallery’s annual calendar and I am overwhelmed by the talent I see each year. In 2014, students are becoming less interested in using computers in the art classroom and want to learn more traditional art-making skills. As they use computers in all other subjects, the art room is somewhere they can make art with their hands and explore materials and techniques.

The exceptional artworks included this year reflect a greater understanding of technique and conceptual thinking around environmental and social issues, dreams and the imagination, their personal world, religion and art history.’

ARTEXPRESS is a joint initiative of the NSW Department of Education and Communities and the Board of Studies NSW in association with the Art Gallery of NSW, the principal venue.

On view: 12 Mar – 11 May 2014. Art Gallery of New South Wales. Art Gallery Road, The Domain, Sydney.

Admission Free.
