Curating kids’ art

Proving it’s never too young to start, kids are literally running the show at one of Tasmania’s most prestigious museums. Not only are the youngsters' paintings featured in the latest exhibition at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery, but kids are also curating the event. Budding artists from nine northern primary schools have been handpicked for the prestigious Launceston ArtStart exhibition. Working around the Tasmanian appropriate theme of ‘Quaint, Quirky and Peculiar’, the concept is about engaging art at a grassroots level. Organiser Lin Farrington told The Examiner the kids made bold and risky choices just like any experienced curator would. She added this experience represented “both the fragility and strength of young people navigating their way through the world, and the talent of our young emerging artists.”
