ARTEXPRESS is a joint project of the NSW Department of Education and Training and the Board of Studies NSW in association with the Art Gallery of NSW. ARTEXPRESS is a dynamic and popular series of exhibitions featuring a selection of outstanding artworks developed for the artmaking component of the 2010 NSW Higher School Certificate examination in Visual Arts from students in both metropolitan and regional NSW.
It encompasses a broad range of approaches and expressive forms, including ceramics, collections of works, designed objects, documented forms, drawing, graphic design, painting, photomedia, printmaking, sculpture, textiles and fibre, and time-based media.
Every year ARTEXPRESS presents a snapshot of students' creativity and the issues and ideas they elect as especially relevant to them. It provides a window on the sustained and focused engagement with art practice by youth, alongside a confirmation of the outstanding talent and ongoing professionalism of NSW Visual Arts teachers.
