PRIMAVERA ARTISTS ANNOUNCED
Primavera artists announced - Art Collector
|11 May 2010 | Jackson Slattery, Akira Akira and Alasdair McLuckie have been chosen to exhibit in this year's Primavera, the Museum of Contemporary Art's annual exhibition of young Australian artists.|
Curated by Katie Dyer, gallery manager and curator at Sydney's National Art School, the selection also includes Julie Fragar, Agatha Gothe-Snape, James Newitt and Emma White.
The exhibition will commence in August and is expected to feature highly experimental work across a diverse array of mediums.
While Dyer has focused on selecting artists based on individual merit, rather than curating around a set topic, themes explored in Primavera include the relationship between humans and the natural environment, systems of knowledge, and the re-interpretation of historical precedents.
