Overview

 

With a 100-year history, the NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (Emerging) is a key exhibition for profiling the dynamism and breadth of emerging contemporary artistic practice in NSW. Held annually at Artspace since 1997, it continues to define new generations of contemporary art practice for both artists and audiences. Valued at $30,000, the Fellowship is offered by the NSW Government through Arts NSW to enable a visual artist at the beginning of their career to undertake a self-directed program of professional development. 

 

The ten finalists for the 2016 NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (Emerging) are: Tully Arnot, Cigdem Aydemir, Frances Barrett, Tim Bruniges, Consuelo Cavaniglia, Julian Day, James Nguyen, Giselle Stanborough, Angela Tiatia and Adri Valery Wens.

 

The 2016 NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (Emerging) is awarded by Arts NSW and presented in partnership with Artspace, Sydney. The Fellowship exhibition is co-curated by Artspace Executive Director Alexie Glass-Kantor and Curator Talia Linz, with Curatorial Assistant Lola Pinder. The exhibition launches at 6pm on Tuesday 8 November with the announcement of the Fellowship recipient and concludes on Saturday 10 December with the annual Artspace Finissage and Program Launch.
