Portrait of a Teenage Territorian is back for 2020

Portraits by teenagers of teenagers, this exhibition brings the world of selfies into a gallery setting. In this exhibition, NCCA publicly celebrates this too-often dismissed form of contemporary photography and gives NT teenagers the chance of being exhibited in a professional art gallery.

Started in 2019 as a playful companion to the NT’s Portrait of a Senior Territorian Art Award, the response from Territorians of all ages was overwhelming, and Portrait of a Teenage Territorian was one of NCCA’s best-attended exhibitions last year. NCCA is proud to present this exhibition again in 2020.

“We received submissions for this exhibition digitally, from right across the Territory, from the red centre to the saltwater sea. When we planned an exhibition that encompassed the geography of the NT, we had luckily also designed a project that was pandemic-proof,” said NCCA Co-Director Hamish McDonald. “Once social distancing went into effect, teachers began noting that this year’s exhibition would be a unique, visual snapshot of NT teenagers in isolation.”
