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.

Black Sea is an exhibition of new work by Maaike Anne Stevens at the Acme Project Space. Utilising moving image, text, print and sculptural forms, Maaike creates a friction between time and events, both real and supposed. The port city of Odessa, on the Black Sea acts as a point of enquiry for Maaike who has spent a period of time researching the rich synthesis of historical events and narratives that surround the sea and the city. The resulting work acts as an exploration of the transitional state between personal drives and appropriated behavioural patterns, set within a landscape marked by Facebook posts and age-old rocks.

Maaike Anne Stevens was the recipient of the Chadwell Studio Award 2012-13 and has continued to be supported by the award during 2013/14. The award aims to provide a bridge between art school and practice as a professional artist and works with different institutions each year. It provides a rent free studio for a year, a bursary of £5,000 and the opportunity for on-going dialogue and critical feedback with other professional artists and curators. Maaike graduated from Goldsmiths in 2012 and during the award has executed works with Jealous Gallery London and the London Print Studio as well as a major public art commission in central London to be completed in 2015.
