Primavera 2003

17 September 200330 November 2003

Primavera: Exhibition of Young Australian Artists is an annual MCA exhibition which showcases the work of Australian artists 35 years of age and under. Primavera 2003 responded to the theme of new media technologies. Curated by Julianne Pierce, Director of the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT), it explores a range of concerns through screen and projection-based media, as well as digital photographs, sculpture, installation and sound.

Eight bodies of work were included in Primavera 2003, by six individual artists and two collaborative groups: Daniel Crooks (VIC), Alex Davies (NSW), Adam Donovan (QLD), Shaun Gladwell (NSW), Stephen Honegger & Anthony Hunt (VIC), Jonathan Jones (NSW), the Kingpins (NSW) and Mari Velonaki (NSW).

An additional, external element by Cicada (Kirsten Bradley and Nick Ritar, VIC) complemented the Museum’s exhibition and extended Primavera’s presence into the centre of Sydney. Cicada premiered a site-specific work as part of “Art & About”, presented by the City of Sydney and AMP.
