Primavera 2021: Young Australian Artists

Exhibition and Shows

9 Dec 2021 to 30 Jan 2022 Once Only Event

‘Primavera: Young Australian Artists’ is the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia’s annual exhibition showcasing the work of Australian artists aged 35 years and under. The exhibition was initiated in 1992 by the MCA in collaboration with Dr Edward Jackson AM and Mrs Cynthia Jackson AM, in memory of their talented and creative daughter Belinda.

Since its inception, the exhibition has celebrated the achievements of Australian artists in the early stages of their careers and fulfilled an important role in bringing younger artists to the attention of a wide audience. Each year the Primavera curator undertakes extensive research, travelling across the country to meet young artists.

In its 30th year, Primavera 2021: Young Australian Artists will be delivered by guest curator Hannah Presley. Participating artists Elisa Jane Carmichael (QLD), Dean Cross (NSW), Hannah Gartside (VIC), Sam Gold (SA), and Justine Youssef (NSW) explore materials that hold stories of the past and engage with techniques shared across generations, inviting new interpretations of the world around us.
