Noisy lady looking for bus change.

Although it’s not quite spring just yet, the Museum of Contemporary Art has recently announced the artists for Primavera 2013. Curated by Robert Cook, one of our favourite Western Australian curator blokes, the show features petite screamers, suburban misfits and assorted builders-labourers, just the sort of mix that can make for an exciting and interesting show, or at least one that is very LOUD.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) reveals the eight artists selected for the 22nd edition of Primavera, the annual exhibition for Australian artists aged 35 years and under.

Primavera 2013 is curated by Robert Cook, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Photography and Design at the Art Gallery of Western Australia. The exhibition features works by Jacqueline Ball (WA), Jackson Eaton (WA/VIC), Heath Franco (NSW), Brendan Huntley (VIC), Thomas Jeppe (WA/VIC), Jess Johnson (VIC), Juz Kitson (NSW) and Kusum Normoyle (NSW).

Themes include a moving investigation of romantic and family relationships, the creation of portals into fictional realms, a look at the role of language in the shaping of (and the breaking down of) the self and the ways sound shapes our physical and emotional worlds. These ideas are presented across a range of media including painting, wall painting, sculpture, photography, installation, ceramics, digital media, sound and performance.

The show will run from September 12 until November 17,. Get the full blah here.
