Josee Vesely-Manning

I am a visual artist based in Sydney, Australia and work predominantly with sculpture and installation. After living in Italy in 2019 my practice expanded to intergrate design. The work I am proposing for Melbourne Design Week 2022 is an iteration of a work I was developing to exhibit in Milan, 2020.

Previously, I have worked for several years in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia and delivered projects and exhibitions for a diverse range of galleries, festivals and funding bodies including The Australia Council, Arts Victoria, The City of Port Philip Cultural Development Fund, The City of Melbourne, Arts House/ The Meat Market, Federation Square, Carriageworks, Underbelly Arts Festival and Artist Led Spaces.

I have also worked as an arts facilitator and curator with numerous local community groups as well as commissions and collaborations with international artists and designers.

I recently completed a Master of Fine Arts at Sydney College of the Arts, The University of Sydney under the thesis title Magic Nihilism.
