Opening to the public on Tuesday 23 September at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Sydney, Primavera 2014 promises to offer visitors a glimpse into Australia’s next generation of visual arts talent.

This year’s guest curator Mikala Dwyer has selected work by artists who seek to reimagine our contemporary audience.

Although there is no specific exhibition theme, each individual work is said to reflect the artist’s unique experience. In a statement given by the MCA, the final outcome is “a powerful collective stream of consciousness telling of shared but diverse experiences of the world we live in”.

Artists in this year’s exhibition include Madison Bycroft, Ben Denham, Nick Dorey, Caitlin Franzmann, Hossein Ghaemi, Emily Hunt, Ishmael Marika, Barayuwa Mununggurr, Sean Peoples and the Telepathy Project (Veronica Kent and Sean Peoples), Alison Puruntatameri, Lucienne Rickard, Marian Tubbs and Paul Yore.

Works include two-dimensional and three-dimensional and time-based work, drawing, painting, sculpture, video, ceramics, textiles, installation and performance, reflecting on topics including surrealism, robotics, queer fertility, witchcraft, science and telepathy.
