Primavera is an annual exhibition for Australian artists 35 years of age and under. Primavera was founded in 1992 by the MCA and Dr Edward Jackson AM and Mrs Cynthia Jackson AM and their family in memory of their daughter and sister Belinda Jackson, a talented jewellery designer who passed away at the age of 29. The exhibition commemorates Belinda Jackson by celebrating the creative achievements of talented young artists who are in the early stages of their careers. It is one of the highlights of the MCA’s annual program of exhibitions.
The Guest Curator for Primavera 2010 is Katie Dyer, Curator at the National Art School, Sydney. Dyer’s selection for Primavera 2010 focuses on artists’ individual achievements in a variety of disciplines, rather than summarising movements or trends. It reflects a broad variety of styles and approaches while highlighting innovative work by emerging artists who are contributing to new interpretations of contemporary art practice.
