ENERGIES has been running for over 30 years and has helped launch the careers of many established Gold Coast artists like Michael Zavros, Rebecca Ross, Michael Candy and Abbey McCulloch.

The exhibition has become known for exploring issues important to younger generations such as body image, sexuality, psychology, environmental awareness and consumerism.

Artworks equally celebrate the diversity of technique and style being learnt on the Gold Coast, as students are encouraged to experiment with materiality and try new forms of media. Like previous ENERGIES this year will include a range of works including painting, installation, sculpture, installation and digital.

The exhibition continues its longstanding relationship with Gold Coast City Gallery, now Gallery at HOTA, Home of the Arts.

Artists are selected by visual arts teachers from participating schools both state and non-state, however school affiliation is not identified within the exhibition space to provide a non-competition environment.
