It is with much excitement we announce that we have had six artworks from the Carey Class of 2023 selected for this year’s Victorian and Tasmanian International Baccalaureate (IB) Visual Arts Exhibition.

Once again viewers will be presented with a series of innovative artworks across a broad range of artforms with works addressing diverse themes from personal and cultural identity, the urban environment and climate change through to social issues.

Amelia Andrighetto, Jessica Moon, Laura Thianesysavanh and Yoyo Ye are to be congratulated on having artworks selected which feature oil painting, digital photographs and mixed media sculptural forms completed during their two-year study. These highly creative pieces on display for the public offer a wonderful snapshot of Carey’s IB Visual Arts program. The following are examples of two of the works you will be able to see at the exhibition:

‘Happy Birthday’, Yoyo Ye (2023). Polymer clay and resin. The artwork explores the memory of being made a bowl of noodles on each birthday.

‘Consumed by Conformity’, Laura Thianesysavanh (2023). Oil paint on canvas. The painting considers society’s expectation on individuals to conform, for example, as symbolised here by eating with western cutlery when that might not be part of one’s cultural heritage.

The 2024 Annual Victorian and Tasmanian International Baccalaureate Visual Arts Exhibition is currently being held at the Glen Eira City Council Gallery in Caulfield until Sunday 25 February.
