A new artist-designed book, The Fire Station Project, has been published which records and celebrates Acme Studios’ Residency & Awards Programme since its inception in 1997. The publication focuses on the Fire Station Work/Live Residencies and contains biographies and images of the 50 artists who have benefited to date. One artist from each of the four previous programmes provides a case study of their experience: Lindsay Seers, Erika Tan, Ben Cove, and Briony Anderson, who also designed the book as one half of AndersonMacgee/Flit London. There are two essays: ‘Environmental Studies’ by Martin Coomer and the ‘The Old Fire Station’ by Jonathan Harvey, as well as a complete list of the over 100 artists who have benefited from Acme’s Residency & Awards Programme.
The Fire Station Project can be downloaded from the Acme website and a limited number of original copies are available to buy for £15.00, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
