Every year the Art Gallery of New South Wales exhibits Artexpress, a collection of works created by the state's visual-arts students for their HSC. It's one of the gallery's most innovative – and trafficked – exhibitions.
It allows the next generation of artists – from across Sydney and regional NSW, and from a mix of private and government schools – into the public arena.
This year's exhibition features 48 pieces selected from 8617 student works from the 2020 higher school certificate cohort. Their artworks traverse multiple disciplines, including sculpture, drawings, paintings, textiles, graphic design and photography. And many address issues directly relevant to their young creators, such as the state of our environment, urban life, the natural world, personal identity, relationships and more.
Open daily from 10am to 5pm. Entry is free.
