COMA is pleased to report that Jelena Telecki has been announced as one of eleven finalists in the 2019 NSW Visual Arts Emerging Fellowship. The 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 over 100 years of history, the Fellowship is a key exhibition for profiling the dynamism and breadth of emerging contemporary artistic practice in NSW. Now in its 23rd year at Artspace, it continues to define new generations of contemporary art practice for both artists and audiences.
Each year Create NSW convenes an independent judging panel of esteemed colleagues to determine the finalists, whom Artspace acknowledges for engaging with insight and passion in assessing what was again a highly competitive round of proposals.
Curators Alexie Glass-Kantor and Elyse Goldfinch will work closely with each of the artists through the development of the exhibition.
