Now in its eighth year, the City of Fremantle 25under25 Art Award continues to provide quality exhibition experience to early career artists and to celebrate the strength and vibrancy that young artists bring to the WA creative community. The Award features a curated selection of young and early-career West Australian artists aged 14 to 25 years whose innovative and diverse artworks span painting, drawing, print, installation, sculpture, video and sound. This year's cohort of artists was selected from almost 100 entries and engages with a broad range of themes and issues, from the aesthetics of home and neighbourhood, to toxic masculinity, sports celebrity, language and history.
