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.

Isobel Wise, AGWA Associate Curator, Projects said, “2020 presented unique challenges that impacted our community as a whole and placed particular pressure on Year 12 students. This time of global change highlighted the importance of community, social equality and creative expression, ideals that have been addressed by these young artists through the examination of themes such as gender, identity, environmental concern, family connection and social pressures. Coupled with works that celebrate the simple joys in life, this year's selection provides considered and engaging insight into contemporary youth culture."
