Top Arts 2020 celebrates the exceptional and thought-provoking work of VCE Art and VCE Studio Arts students. Drawn from a range of media, topics, schools and students, Top Arts 2020 is part of the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority’s annual showcasing of excellence. Students communicate their passion and dedication as they capture the contemporary local and global issues. Themes of identity, the environment, mental health, innovation, ethics and many others are explored, interrogated and expressed in creative ways. Audiences are treated to a taste of what captures the imagination and concerns of tomorrow’s artists.
