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/WASPS Exchange Residency

Moray Hillary and Agnes Nedregard have spent the last few years working on joining their painting and performance-based practices, attempting to find new ways of expressing their private world of two and three dimensional imagery and live presence in an exhibition context.

At the Acme Project Space they aspire to push their project onto another level, making a true live exhibition through live interactions, performances and continuous transformations during the timeframe of the show. The centrepiece of ‘Entrances’ will be a homemade raft, packed with objects and materials the artists find useful to bring on their journey of discovery. Nedregard and Hillary explain:

‘For almost six years now, we have worked continually on various projects, attempting to evolve a cohesive meeting point between performance art and painting. For this exhibition, we have created an environment that describes elements that are sometimes not actually there, that cannot often be seen, a private world of conveyed entrances and images from a personal dialogue. This is really the first time that our individual art practices have truly merged, practically and theoretically.’

In 2010, Acme Studios and WASPS developed an artists’ exchange residency between work/live spaces in Scotland and London. The rent-free residency is open to artists based in studios managed by the two organisations. Moray Hillary was selected as the first recipient artist of the Acme/WASPS Exchange Residency and, along with collaborator Agnes Nedregard, spent two months at Acme’s Fire Station work/live programme in East London.
