The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) presents MCA Collection: Eight Artists opening on 17 March 2023 in the Level 1 South Galleries.
This new display curated by MCA Curator, Manya Sellers, gives focus to eight significant Australian artists represented in the MCA Collection: Judith Wright, Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori, Raelene Kerinauia Lampuwatu, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Naminapu Maymuru-White, Sandra Selig, Esme Timbery and Gulumbu Yunupiŋu.
The materially seductive surfaces of the five paintings in Relative Conversations by Judith Wright have been built up through layers of pigment and beeswax. Sweeping curves and tonal shifts create a dynamic interplay between positive and negative space, giving these large-scale works on paper a sense of depth and tactility.
