Primavera 2011

As the MCA is currently under some very exciting renovations its annual Primavera exhibition, which showcases young Australian artists, went offsite this year. Scattered around the Rocks precinct, the exhibition featured some highly intriguing works including videos, installations, illustrations and posters. However with works placed in obscure places and little signage, it was very hard to navigate and in actuality turned out to be more of a wild goose hunt even with a map in hand. Perhaps next time to ensure that people don’t miss out on seeing the works, a chalk/sticker route on the footpath, or signs that say “Look up, artwork above you,” or “artwork down this lane” would be a helpful idea.
