Exit Art is a celebration of the talents and creativity of the next generation of artists and designers, presenting the very best contemporary art and design from Northern Territory Year 12 students. Proudly supported by the Museum and Art Gallery Northern Territory in partnership with the Northern Territory Department of Education, Exit Art reflects the diversity of NT artistic practice and practitioners, expressing universal themes of identity, place and environment.

This year continues the exhibition’s 25 year legacy highlighting the importance of visual arts education and the role of arts educators in encouraging and guiding the creativity of young NT artists in preparation for their futures.

Featuring the work of 44 Year 12 graduates from across Northern Territory communities, cities and towns, Exit Art is a showcase of demonstrable technical skill with an appetite for experimentation. Across a variety of mediums, students have offered contemporary takes on traditional techniques, drawing inspiration from other artists, family and culture.

Awards will be presented from the Minister for Education, Art Educators of the Northern Territory, Tactile Arts and the Darwin Visual Arts Association. Visitors will be able to cast their votes in the People's Choice Award.
