On Saturday 3 March the 2017 Exit Art Exhibition opened at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.
Exit Art is a celebration of the talents and creativity of the next generation of artists and designers, presenting the very best contemporary art and design from Northern Territory Year 12 students. This year continues the exhibition’s 25 year legacy highlighting the importance of visual arts education and the role of arts educators in encouraging and guiding the creativity of young NT artists in preparation for their futures.
Acting Principal, Jill Hazeldine said

Featuring the work of forty-four Year 12 graduates from across Northern Territory communities, cities and towns, Exit Art is a showcase of demonstrable technical skill with an appetite for experimentation. Across a variety of mediums, students have offered contemporary takes on traditional techniques, drawing inspiration from other artists, family and culture.
The exhibition is open now until 20 May.
