PRIMAVERA at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney
We are delighted to be supporting the MCA's annual exhibition of young Australian artists aged 35 and under, Primavera, for the 4th year. Featuring the work of seven artists drawn from South West, South Central and South East Australia, Primavera 2015 opens to the public on 22 September. The artists in this year's Primavera extract earth materials, work with sound, video and installation and create assemblages reflecting strategies of survival and the revival of forms of cultural production. The exhibition is curated by Sydney-based Aboriginal artist Nicole Foreshew, 2015 MCA Curatorial Fellow.
