Anywhere but here: MCA Primavera Acquisitions&nbsp;responds to the global upheaval of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Recognising that pre-existing issues have been aggravated by the current crisis- it considers ideas of labour and domesticity- wellbeing and community- place and urbanism.The exhibition draws from the MCA's collection of works by artists who have participated in Primavera- the MCA's annual exhibition of young Australian artists aged 35 and under. While these works were created prior to the pandemic- it provides a lens for approaching them in new terms. Emma White questions capitalist demands on productivity- while Keg de Souza highlights housing instability and the importance of public space. Hiromi Tango invites us to experience the therapeutic benefits of movement and self-expression- and Dion Beasley draws us back to the local- encouraging us to deepen our social connections. The selected works highlight longstanding strains on society that need to be addressed.Anywhere but here borrows its title from a work by Matthew Griffin. As a throwaway statement- it's something any one of us might mutter under our breath in the present moment. Restlessness is one of many responses we could land on- as our emotions fluctuate along with the news cycle.While considering the immediate impacts of the pandemic on contemporary society- Anywhere but here meditates on the potential for lasting structural change.CuratorsStephanie Berlangieri and Lucy LatellaArtistsSuzannah BartaDion BeasleyShaun GladwellMatthew GriffinFelicia KanPaul KnightMoya McKennaJess MacNeilTV MooreNellKeg de SouzaHiromi TangoEmma White
