Creative Generation

Excellence Awards in Visual Art

Each year, the ‘Creative Generation Excellence Awards in Visual Art’ recognises and celebrates the artistic achievements and creative talents of senior high school students from across Queensland.

This exhibition presents the work of 37 award recipients selected in 2020 from over 500 entries from metropolitan and regional schools throughout the state.

These young artists reflect on their own cultural identities, draw attention to social issues and raise concerns about our impact on the environment. Drawing on a wide range of media, materials and techniques, they show us that art can communicate ways of seeing the world, document the human experience, and connect people. Together, these works demonstrate the passion, interests and creativity of a new generation.
