Top Arts 2019 presents diverse and accomplished works of art from students who have completed Art or Studio Arts as part of the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).

Hosted at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, the exhibition showcases young artists’ exploration of some of the greatest concerns of contemporary times, and their creative celebration of humanity and the world. Students from throughout metropolitan and regional Victoria included in Top Arts 2018 explored topics including gender identity, community, consumerism and the immersive experience of sporting arenas.

Top Arts also provides an opportunity to view selected developmental materials that give insights into students’ ideas and working practices and provide inspiration for audiences of all ages. Celebrating 25 years at the NGV in 2019, this annual exhibition is a significant part of the NGV exhibition calendar, offering young people an opportunity to exhibit their technical brilliance and innovation.
