Leading Latin American and Australian artist Maria Fernanda Cardoso has been announced as the 14th curator of MCA ARTAR.
On Friday July 26, Cardoso will encourage gallery-goers to spend the night as Mother Nature intended – not in the nut, but all-embracing of the artist’s nominated theme ‘Sex Everywhere’. The MCA will be transformed into Fernanda’s Museum of Copulatory Organs – an installation celebrating the diversity and complexity in genitalic structures across the animal kingdom. Punters should expect to be taken on an arousing journey into the urban ecosystem of animal and plant reproduction carried throughout the Museum. Y’all will be able to undress a flower, view Jurgen Otto’s footage of the mating dances of male Peacock Spiders or respond to the calls of the wild with Gary Warner’s soundscape of mating calls. Time to get jiggy with it, folks.
