Free entry

The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, Fed Square

Temporary Exhibition (Gallery 17), Level 3

1 Apr 10 – 20 Jun 10

A major event in the annual school calendar, Top Arts: VCE 2009 again presents outstanding work completed by young student artists as part of their assessment for VCE Art and Studio Arts.

VCE Art requires students to complete a body of works that involves a broad and innovative investigation and the progressive realisation and resolution of ideas, directions and individual concepts, either in an exploratory folio or through one or more visual solutions. VCE Studio Arts requires students to complete a design process that defines an area of exploration in a work brief and the production of a cohesive folio of finished works of art.

This exhibition highlights the National Gallery of Victoria’s strong commitment and support of contemporary art, arts education and showcases the ideas and attitudes of young people. From an initial selection of over 3,000 works and through a rigorous selection process and short listing procedure it is anticipated approximately 60 students are represented in the exhibition with a diversity of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, multimedia and installation.
