Artist comments on RMB Talent Unlocked 2018:

"I have been so blessed and honoured in being a part of a journey shared with fellow artists in the Talent Unlocked mentor-ship program in partnership with RMB, VANSA, and Assemblage. The course entailed a six-month program in which nineteen artists were selected for an intensive course focusing on the creative value chain, business in art and developing a body of work for Turbine Art Fair 2018. The successful candidates who were able to execute and implement the guidance strategies will be showcasing their work in the final exhibition in July at the Turbine Art Fair. We have reached the end of the journey, and the various bodies of work will be on show in the week to come. I have so much excitement in sharing that which we have accomplished. I would like to thank the mentors, organisers, facilitators, Fulu our curator and RMB for funding this phenomenal programme." Jessica Michelle Le Roux
