ARTEXPRESS 2021 features a selection of outstanding student artworks developed for the art-making component of the HSC examination in Visual Arts in 2020 – a challenging year – and provides insight into students’ creativity and the issues important to them.

The exhibition encompasses a broad range of approaches and expressive forms, including ceramics, collection of works, documented forms, drawing, graphic design, painting, photomedia, printmaking, sculpture, textiles and fibre, and time-based forms.

These elegant and highly resolved bodies of work demonstrate a creativity, resilience and sustained investigation of the very complex world and times in which we live.
