Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art 2018

21 Apr 2018 – 29 Jul 2018
GOMA | Gallery 2 | Free

The Queensland Government Department of Education and Training's exhibition 'Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art' showcases the artworks of 31 Queensland senior secondary art students from regional and metropolitan schools.

In 2018, 'Creative Generation' includes photography, painting, mixed media, sculpture, video and installation works by young Queensland artists who have been exploring contemporary ideas and art-making processes during their 2017 academic year. Through windows into worlds both familiar and unknown, these students' works present viewers with moments that range from deep introspection to whimsical play. Their research and experimentation offer insights into cultural identity, key ethical dilemmas of our time, and a sense of our relationship to the natural world.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an in-gallery interactive digital catalogue with artwork information, images and artists' statements, which will also be available for teachers and students to download.

The 'Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art' is an initiative of the Department of Education and Training, supported by the Queensland Art Gallery ǀ Gallery of Modern Art.
