Primavera: Young Australian Artists

Exhibition and Shows

8 Nov 2019 to 9 Feb 2020

Since 1992, the Primavera series has showcased the works of artists in the early stages of their career. Each year, a curator is invited to select artists from across Australia that they feel represent current trends and styles emerging in the next generation.

Many artists featured in Primavera have gone on to exhibit nationally and internationally, such as Shaun Gladwell, Mikala Dwyer, Rebecca Baumann, Jonathan Jones and Jess Johnson. Primavera was initiated in memory of Belinda Jackson – a talented jeweller who died at the age of 29 – by her parents, Dr Edward Jackson AM and Mrs Cynthia Jackson AM, along with their family.

Primavera 2019 will be the 28th edition of the exhibition and curated by Sydney artist Mitch Cairns.
