PRIMAVERA AT 25: MCA COLLECTION

Exhibition on view 16 June – 19 August 2018.

Primavera at 25: MCA Collection celebrates twenty-five years of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia’s Primavera exhibition.

Taking this significant milestone as a departure point, Primavera at 25 brings together works by 19 artists and artist groups, who have previously exhibited in Primavera, that explore ideas of transformation, time and history.

Established in 1992, Primavera showcases the work of young Australia artists aged 35 years and under. One of the longest-running exhibitions series in the country, Primavera has become a significant platform for early career artists. Over 206 artists have exhibited in the annual exhibition between 1992 and 2016.

Primavera artists have gone on to exhibit both nationally and internationally, to become influential artists, and to play a significant role in the development of contemporary art practice in Australia.
