The 2020 Senior School Art Exhibition opened on Thursday 22 October, highlighting the incredible talent of our Year 12 visual arts, design and media students.

The exhibition – titled ’20/20 VISIONS’ – kicked off with a showcase of six short films, produced by our Year 12 Media students. The films ranged from the sombre and poignant to the raucous and hilarious and each demonstrated our art students’ deep understanding of genre and film-making techniques.

Associate Professor Susanna Castleden (Director of Research and Creative Production in the School of Media, Creative Arts and Social Inquiry at Curtin University) then spoke on her experience engaging with the work of the Art Students as a guest judge for the exhibition and discussed her view of the art community as a source of cultural capital.

From there, the winners of the 2020 art prizes were announced and the teachers in the Art Department were celebrated for their dedication and tireless hard work.

The evening concluded with the guests in attendance taking a tour of the Art Department building where all of our Years 7 to 12 Art Students’ works adorned the walls on full display.

It was a sensational night with over 300 people in attendance, the format received incredible positive feedback and the buzz around the school was electric.
