about the exhibition

Guest Curator Natalie King’s exhibition, investigated the way the MCA’s ensemble of art, architecture and installations orchestrates the visitor’s experience. Each of the artists chosen used tools of display, arrangement and presentation in order to comment on the museum’s desire to construct meaning. The frames, pedestals, vitrines, and supports that traditionally are designed to be invisible, in order to accentuate the displayed artwork were brought to centre stage: directly referenced and integral parts of the exhibited works.

Primavera is the Museum’s annual exhibition of Australian artists aged 35 years and under. Since 1992, the series has showcased the works of artists in the early stages of their career, many of whom have gone on to exhibit nationally and internationally.

Primavera was initiated in 1992 by Dr Edward Jackson AM and Mrs Cynthia Jackson AM and their family in memory of their daughter and sister Belinda, a talented jeweller who died at the age of 29.
