Young Curators

Young Curators Exhibition with Trinity Grammar School

20 June - 4 August 2019

An exciting and avant-garde art program delivering education…

3:33 Art Projects has created an innovative art program, “Young Curators”, to partner with secondary schools to support education in the arts and provide unique experiences for the students, the school and the broader community whilst supporting Australian artists. 3:33 Art Projects is working with leading artists Jasper Knight, Euan Macleod, Vanessa Stockard and McLean Edwards at schools including International Grammar School, Knox Grammar School, Abbotsleigh School, and Trinity Grammar School.

The inaugural Young Curators exhibition is Euan Macleod at Trinity Grammar School. Over a six month period, five Year 10 and Year 11 Trinity Grammar School students visited Euan Macleod's studio and solo exhibition with 3:33 Art Project at Clayton Utz, and were given generous access to Euan Macleod's archives. Choosing to focus on the theme of the guardian figure, they have selected over 40 paintings, sketches and preliminary drawings spanning 1983 to 2019, touching on key periods of Macleod's work including his family portraits of the late 1980s - 1990s, the Lyttelton Harbour paintings beginning in the early 2000s and the Gallipoli and Colossus paintings since 2010.

Young Curators will allow selected students to work with a leading Australian visual artist to host an art exhibition at the school and work as a curatorial team to research, develop, select and stage the exhibition, providing valuable insights into various perspectives of the creative art industry.
