WHAT DO PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS SAY?

“Emilia gave so much insight into her knowledge and research about the art-worlds and how to develop our own practice, what possibilities there are and that we can create our own art-worlds. And she empowered you to become active and do not wait for others and so on. It was really encouraging and gave a compass to work with which I will definitely make use of from now on. It really lightened the fog and took away the blurry uncertain feeling I had beforehand as it made quite clear how the art world works and how you best navigate it.” (H.D. participant, 2023)

 

“Emilia’s workshop was fascinating and useful.The exercises she does really get you thinking and sometimes even produces a ‘a-ha moment‘ ” (D.B. participants, 2023)

Emilia Telese

Emilia Telese (PhD doctorate) is an artist and academic based between Reykjavík, Italy and the UK. Born in Italy, she graduated in Painting from Fine Arts Academy in Florence in 1996 with a particular interest in XIV Century techniques, the Italian Trans-AvantGarde movement and contemporary performance. She subsequently furthered her studies at the University of Brighton (Printmaking), University of Sussex (Arts Management), University of Warwick (Cultural Policy) and University of Loughborough (Social Sciences). Her work has been shown worldwide since 1994, exhibited at the Louvre (Paris 2012), the New Forest Pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale (Venice, 2005), Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria, 2002 – 2003), ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany 2007), Chashama (New York City, USA 2008), Centro Cultural Telemar (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil 2010), Manege (St Petersburg, Russia 2000), Leeds City Gallery, ArtSway(New Forest, UK) and the Freud Museum (London UK). She has presented her work at major events at Tate Britain, the Royal Festival Hall, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) Oxford, Manchester Contemporary, Merchant City Festival, Glasgow, the Brighton Festival, among others.

She holds an AHRC CDA full bursary PhD doctorate in Social Sciences from the University of Loughborough, UK. Her PhD thesis focused on the social value and the individualisation of artists in the UK between 1980 and 2010.

As an artist, her practice crosses traditional media with time-based practice, including immersive, sensorial, interactive and body-responsive technology, lens-based practice, performance, installation, and public art, as well as classic media such as painting, printmaking and drawing. Often site-specific, Emilia’s work deals with conscious engagement, political and social debate, non-verbal communication and the questioning and deconstruction of social behaviour.

Emilia Telese is Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Ambassador for his Third Paradise worldwide project, supported by the Fondazione Pistoletto, Biella, Italy. She is a lecturer specialised in the relationship between art, society, economics and artists’ professional practice. She has lectured and held courses at many UK and international institutions, such as The University of the Arts, London; Royal College of Art, London; Manchester Metropolitan University; University of Brighton; University for the Creative Arts, Farnham; Sheffield Hallam University; Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design, London; the Iceland University of the Arts, Reykjavík; University of Maastricht, the Netherlands; University of Munich, Germany; the Pistoletto Foundation, Biella, Italy; the Fine Art Academies of Palermo and Florence, Italy.

Emilia has represented practising artists in official UK and European contexts since 2001. She has led UK and European-wide debate events about artists’ livelihoods, political art and social engagement. Emilia Telese is represented by The Artists’ Agency in the UK. She has received awards, endorsements and scholarships by private and public funding bodies since 1999, such as Arts Council of England, AHRC – Arts And Humanities Research Council UK, Millennium Awards, Awards for All, British Council and others.
