PRIMAVERA with Mikala Dwyer

Curator of 2014 Primavera, Sydney-based artist Mikala Dwyer joined me in the studio couple of weeks ago (August 14, 2014) to talk Australian emerging art scene.

  • How do we define emerging?
  • Why she sees herself more as a host then a curator proper?
  • How did she go about selecting 13 artists out of more than 100 she met whilst traveling around the country?
  • Are there some current or emerging trends amongst the young Australian artists?
  • How is the Northern Territory art scene different from Sydney’s and Melbourne’s?
