WA's talented young artists are celebrated in this yearly showcase, gauging the pulse of young people who will influence, empower and shape the world we live in.
The selected works provide a window into young people’s private, social and artistic concerns. It is in turns an inspiring, rewarding and insightful look at the world through the minds of our most talented young artists.
This year’s exhibition features 30 works by 2020 Year 12 Visual Arts graduates from 21 schools across Western Australia. The chosen works span a variety of subject matter and media, ranging from painting and drawing to sculpture, digital moving image and textiles. Human impact on the environment, identity and family are prominent themes and issues explored in this year's Pulse Perspectives exhibition.
The judging panel for this year's exhibition included contemporary WA artist Amy Perejuan-Capone; Department of Education, Teacher Development Cassie Bussell, and former AGWA Associate Curator, Projects, Rachel Ciesla.
