In 2012 there were 9,580 students who submitted artworks as part of the 2012 Higher School Certificate Visual Arts Examination. Eleven distinct ARTEXPRESS exhibitions have been selected from the 2012 HSC Visual Arts examination for display in 2013.
Exhibition 28 August - 20 October 2013
The final selections for ARTEXPRESS reflect the range of explorations within the expressive forms submitted for marking. Care is taken to select works representing both government and non-government schools from metropolitan and regional centers across New South Wales that reflect the candidature of the examination.
This year's exhibitions reflect students many interests and concerns, exploring culture, personal identity and family relations. The bigger issues of world politics and the human impact on the environment were also addressed. In the creation of their bodies of work, the students have demonstrated their understanding and mastery of the technical skills and conventions required to produce an artwork along with sophisticated conceptual understanding of the world in which they live.
