SAMIR HAMAIEL ANNOUNCED AS FINALIST IN MACQUARIE GROUP EMERGING ARTIST PRIZE / by Samir Hamaiel

Macquarie Group last week announced the 9 short-listed entries for the 2019 Macquarie Group Emerging Artist Prize. Now in its eighth year, the Macquarie Group Emerging Artist Prize supports and recognises a new generation of Australian visual artists. Artists in the early stages of their careers were invited to enter an original work (or works) that reflects the Macquarie Group Collection theme, The Land and its Psyche.

I was lucky enough to be of the nine artists and will attend the  official opening and announcement in August. Finalists were selected by the Macquarie Group Collection Committee, and their works will be exhibited at Space Gallery, 1 Shelley Street, Sydney between 13 August and 5 September 2019.
