‘Portrait of a Teenage Territorian’ is back for 2020 – this year’s exhibition reveals the lives of NT teenagers in isolation.
The Northern Centre for Contemporary Art (NCCA) is partnering with the Darwin Fringe Festival to present our second annual Portrait of a Teenage Territorian exhibition, 3-18 July 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 professional art galleries.
Started in 2019 as a playful companion to the NT’s Portrait of a Senior Territorian photography 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.
This photography exhibition will take place in NCCA’s gallery space (with social distancing protocols in-place) from 3-18 July 2020, and will be available as an online exhibition after 31 July 2020.
Exhibition Dates: 3-18 July 2020
Additional viewing times: Wed-Fri 10am-4pm, Sat 10am-2pm, or by appointment
A digital version of this exhibition will be available as of 31 July 2020 on: nccart.com.au
