emerge 2020 is a showcase exhibition featuring artwork created by secondary school students from across the Bundaberg region.
As the name suggests, emerge 2020, is committed to fostering emerging talent and strengthening public understanding of the integral role the arts plays in developing resilient, innovative and engaged community members.
The exhibition includes a broad range of approaches and expressive forms, including ceramics, drawing, graphic design, photomedia, printmaking, sculpture, textiles and paintings.
emerge 2020 also gives an insight into the social isolation experienced by students during the COVID-19 lockdown and the effects this has had on mental health, relationships, learning and connectedness.
These themes are explored further through the emerge fringe festival which sees the activation of public spaces through a range of art genres over the December/January period.
Bundaberg Regional Galleries encourage and acknowledge the importance of art in the community and are proud to offer a platform for the talented artists and creative professionals of tomorrow.
