Jess Johnson, ruling

Here’s footage of my pal Jess Johnson in the midst of her epic install for Primavera (the MCA’s annual curated exhibition for artists 35 years and under).  What a ledge.  This year’s iteration was curated by Robert Cook, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Photography and Design at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.  The show also includes Jacqueline Ball (WA), Jackson Eaton (WA/VIC), Heath Franco (NSW), Brendan Huntley (VIC), Thomas Jeppe (WA/VIC), Juz Kitson (NSW) and Kusum Normoyle (NSW) and opens in Sydney tomorrow night.

Galerie pompom

Ron and George Adams (the duo behind Sydney-based artist run initiative MOP projects) are about to launch a new commercial venture in Chippendale.  Concentrating on contemporary Australian practice, Galerie pompom opens on the 6th of March with a group exhibition featuring work by each of their represented artists, including MOP curator/artist Nana Ohnesorge and former Tristian Koenig Gallery artist Heath Franco.
