Young and emerging artists at the ready, because theMCAhas revealed the eight artists selected for the 22nd edition ofPrimavera, the annual exhibition for Australian artists aged 35 years and under, and we reckon the lineup’s enough inspiration to keep you kicking until it’s your time to shine.

Curated by Robert Cook, Primavera 2013 will feature the work of Jacqueline Ball, Jackson Eaton, Heath Franco, Brendan Huntley, Thomas Jeppe, Jess Johnson, Juz Kitson and Kusum Normoyle who engage practices of painting, wall painting, sculpture, photography, installation, ceramics, digital media, sound and performance. Combined, the artists will explore an array of themes including a moving investigation of romantic and family relationships, the creation of portraits into fictional realms, a look at the role of language in the shaping of the self and the ways sound shapes our physical and emotional worlds. Primavera 2013 runs from September 12 through November 17.
