Fantastic, ambitious, angry, mysterious: take a step inside the extraordinary lives and times of twenty-five artists who have made an impact, and told a good story along the way. You’re invited to join author Ronnie Scott and guests on a journey through twenty-five of the most dramatic and exciting stories about artists and artworks in new NGV teen publication 25 International Artists Who Have Made an Impact.
We are extremely thankful to Mrs Krystyna Campbell-Pretty and the Campbell-Pretty Family for their generous support which has made this publication possible and has broadened access to the NGV Collection through ongoing programming for young visitors.

Top Arts 2018 presents a rich range of diverse and accomplished works of art from students who have completed Art or Studio Arts as part of the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) 2017. Fifty-four inspiring young artists from throughout metropolitan and regional Victoria have delved deeply into some of the greatest concerns of contemporary times. Environmental degradation, psychological resilience, the influence of mass media and materialism are a few. Celebrations of human diversity, transition and surprising views of our world are also wonderfully captured and presented. Our next generation of artists have courageously experimented with traditional and unusual materials. Some of them share their experience.
