Baumann's 'Automated Colour Field' works began in 2011, following a residency in Berlin, where she became interested in the scheduling boards at train stations. Automated Colour Field (Variation 6) consists... Continue Reading →

This is primarily because I would like to expand my knowledge of how their exhibitions are designed. As I only had thirty minutes, I decided to focus on one of the two rooms displaying Primavera artwork. For those who have visited, or plan on visiting, it is the room immediately to the right of the cloakroom.
My first question was, what is Primavera? I am not very tuned into the world of art so this was the first time I had even heard of such an exhibition. To my surprise, Primavera is one of the longest running exhibitions in the country! Essentially, it is an exhibition held yearly at the MCA showcasing artwork by early career artists. One condition is that…

Kathy Richards very kindly permitted me to share the text of her post and some of... Continue Reading →
