In 2014 the highly popular Top Arts celebrates its twentieth year at the National Gallery of Victoria. The exhibition presents outstanding work by students who have completed Art or Studio Arts studies in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and provides insight into young people’s ideas, thinking and creative practices. StArt Up: Top Arts 2014 will be displayed in NGV Studio, the Gallery’s popular and dynamic contemporary art space at NGV Australia at Federation Square and features folios, developmental material and preparatory work as part of the installation. StArt Up: Top Arts 2014 presents the work of our freshest and most inspiring young artists and builds on a well-earned reputation for being one of the liveliest and most visited exhibitions on the NGV calendar.

A range of informative and interactive programs will run throughout StArt Up: Top Arts 2014, including introductory talks by exhibiting artists and student and teacher professional learning programs.
