Over the past eleven years MGA has celebrated the work of emerging photomedia artists with the annual TOPshots award and exhibition. TOPshots showcases artwork produced by students studying the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) subjects of Art, Media and Studio Arts and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Visual Arts. Each of these subjects has a different focus within the broader course of arts education offered to Victorian secondary school students, making the TOPshots exhibition an exciting overview of different creative trajectories.
The artworks displayed in this exhibition offer little more than a glimpse of the year-long course of study each of these young artists has undertaken. It would be remiss not to mention the laborious nature of each of these subjects and the hours spent testing, refining and creating final folio pieces and documenting creative processes in visual diaries.
MGA is proud to have the opportunity to acknowledge the excellence of young photomedia artists in our community, and welcome our visitors to take inspiration from the creative potential that TOPshots 2018-19 represents.
