Since 1992, the Primavera series has showcased the works of artists and curators in the early stages of their career, many of whom – such as Shaun Gladwell, Mikala Dwyer, Rebecca Baumann, Jonathan Jones and Jess Johnson – have gone on to exhibit nationally and internationally.

The MCA is thrilled to announce Emily Cormack as the Curator for the next edition of Primavera. Since 2001, Emily has curated and co-curated over 25 exhibitions in institutional, freelance and artist-run contexts throughout the Asia Pacific region as well as in Europe. She has extensive experience working with young artists on the cusp of their career, and the MCA is looking forward to working with her to present the artwork of a new set of young Australian artists to its audiences in 2016.

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.
