Excited to be a finalist in the NSW Visual Arts Emerging Artist Fellowship this year with so many artists I admire. And to be working with the amazing team at Artspace, Sydney. Exhibition opens Thursday 15 Nov at Artspace.

Artspace and Create NSW are pleased to announce the ten finalists for the 2018 NSW Visual Arts Emerging FellowshipKieran ButlerEO Gill, Biljana JancicShivanjani LalJD ReformaMarikit SantiagoGeorgia SaxelbyShireen TaweelKai Wasikowski and Jodie Whalen.

 Valued at $30,000, this Fellowship is offered by the NSW Government through Create NSW to enable a visual artist at the beginning of their career to undertake a self-directed program of professional development. With a 100-year history, the Fellowship is a key exhibition for profiling the dynamism and breadth of emerging contemporary artistic practice in NSW. Now in its 22nd year at Artspace, it continues to define new generations of contemporary art practice for both artists and audiences.

Curators Alexie Glass-Kantor, Michelle Newton and Lola Pinder will work closely with each of the artists through the development of the exhibition. Of the ten finalists, one artist will be awarded the Fellowship at the opening night of the exhibition, Thursday 15 November, 2018.
