Acme, supporting artists since 1972

Acme Project Space

 

The Acme Project Space ran from June 2009 to December 2015. It provided an opportunity for those artists who are part of our Residency & Awards Programme and our International Residencies Programme with a public space within which to develop projects, show new work and engage in a critical dialogue with a wider audience.

Acme International Residencies Programme: Australia Council for the Arts

DISAPPOINTED WITH MANY PEOPLE & THINGS continues Tom Polo's use of text, humour and extensions of portraiture to engage with a corrosive anxiety with the human condition and the genres of self help and motivation. The exhibition explores contemporary society’s inherent desire for success and hints at our ever present failings, influenced by what is deemed 'good' against 'bad'. The opening night will feature a new painting performance developed during the artist's time in London.

In 2010 Tom was the recipient of an Australia Council for the Arts London studio residency hosted by Acme Studios. DISAPPOINTED WITH MANY PEOPLE & THINGS is his first solo exhibition in the United Kingdom.
