How do we define emerging?
Why she sees herself more as a host then a curator proper?
How did she go about selecting 13 artists out of more than 100 she met whilst travelling around the country?
Are there some current or emerging trends the young Australian artists are preoccupied with or are exploring?
How is the Northern Territory art scene different from Sydney and Melbourne one?

These and more in the interview with Mikala:

Primavera, an annual exhibition for emerging Australian artists is taking place at the Museum of Contemporary Art from September 23 – November 30, 2014. For more information and the full list of featured artists click here
