SEEP is a showcase exhibition which brings together four emerging artists as they come to the end of the Acme Graduate Programme, a year-long studio programme for recent graduates from a range of London art schools. Four of this year’s awardees, Kristaps Ancāns, Josh Berry, Caroline Streck and Ruth Waters have made new work to exhibit in the gallery spaces at PEER.

Focusing on the transition between college and professional practice, Acme aims to intervene in critical points in an artists’ careers. As part of Acme’s Residencies & Awards Programme, the Acme Graduate Programme provides recent graduates with a rent-free shared studio for one year, cash bursary, mentoring from visiting artists and curators, and the opportunity to work towards a public project or exhibition. The programme offers emerging artists the time, space, financial support and opportunities to build their practice beyond art school within a supportive network/shared community of peers. In 2016-17, the graduates received group mentoring and support from Haroon Mirza, Oreet Ashery, Patrick Goddard, Janice Kerbel, Chris Fite-Wassilak, Anna Colin, and Nikhil Vettukattil. The programme is generously supported by Jane Hamlyn, and the families of Adrian Carruthers and Helen Scott Lidgett.

Acme’s partnership with PEER provides the artists a rare opportunity to exhibit at an internationally renowned gallery and to benefit from the generosity and experience of director and curator Ingrid Swenson.
