Opening | Thursday 15 November 6–8pm
Exhibition Dates | 16 November – 16 December 
Artist Talks | Saturday 1 December, 2:30pm 

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.

The ten finalists for the 2018 NSW Visual Arts Emerging Fellowship are: Kieran Butler, EO Gill, Biljana Jancic, Shivanjani Lal, JD Reforma, Marikit Santiago, Georgia Saxelby, Shireen Taweel, Kai Wasikowski and Jodie Whalen

The 2018 NSW Visual Arts Emerging Fellowship is awarded by Create NSW and presented in partnership with Artspace, Sydney. Of the ten finalists, one artist will be awarded the Fellowship at the opening night of the exhibition, Thursday 15 November, 2018.
