Primavera 2018: Young Australian Artists
Primavera is the MCA's annual exhibition of young Australian artists aged 35 years and under. Primavera 2018 brings together eight of the most exciting young artists working in Australia.
This year's exhibition asks, 'Why is identity important today?' The participating artists consider, explore and re-examine the politics of identity, visibility and representation. Working across a range of media, they highlight and counter the complex social, political and cultural frameworks that underpin the construction and interpretation of personal and collective identity.
In its 27th iteration, Primavera 2018 features artists working with archival materials, installation, painting, performance, photography, sculpture and video. The artists are Hoda Afshar (VIC), Caroline Garcia (NSW), Hayley Millar-Baker (VIC), Spence Messih (NSW), Phuong Ngo (VIC), Jason Phu (NSW), Ryan Presley (QLD) and Andrew Tenison (ACT).
