The West Australian Pulse

Exhibition and Shows

27 May 2022 to 24 Jul 2022 Annual Event

WA’s talented young artists are celebrated in this yearly showcase, gauging the pulse of young people who will influence, impact and shape the world we live in.

This year’s exhibition celebrates 30 years, featuring 49 works by 2021 Year 12 Visual Arts graduates from 32 schools across Western Australia.

This year The West Australian Pulse exhibitors explore themes of mental health and social pressures, environmentalism and human impact, connection, meaning and memory.

From the inception of the exhibition in the early 1990s, the public showed immense support and enthusiasm for the work of graduating students and the popularity of the exhibition quickly grew. The selected works in what was known as Year 12 Perspectives have always been chosen on merit, creativity and individuality, not on the top marks of that year, and have presented an interesting mix of the finalists’ good technique, original ideas and creative interpretation.

Looking back at 30 years of Pulse highlights how artistic style has developed over time. It is also a moment to reflect on how the social concerns of young people have progressed or shifted. In this way, we can recognise issues that stand-alone or themes which connect across time.

The exhibition is an inspiring, rewarding and insightful look at the world through the minds of our most talented young artists.
