Discover the art stars of tomorrow today in the MCA's annual showcase of fresh talent
Every year, the Museum of Contemporary Art invites an artist to curate its Primavera exhibition, a showcase for artists under 35.
Beyond this, the format is flexible – how many artists and works one wants to program, and whether it is existing or new work, or a combination. That flexibility is the show’s greatest asset, allowing each artist-curator to put their stamp on the show – you might say that Primavera is as much an artwork as an exhibition of artworks.
In 2016, artist and curator Emily Cormack is the creative centre of Primavera, selecting eight artists for the exhibition: Steven Cybulka (SA), Pia van Gelder (NSW), Biljana Jancic (NSW), Ruth McConchie (QLD), Adelle Mills (VIC), Mira Oosterweghel (VIC), Emily Parsons-Lord (NSW) and Danae Valenza (VIC).
Each artist is creating new work for the exhibition.
