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.

juice is an exhibition with works by Lydia Davies, Chris Ifould, Piotr Krzymowski, Sean Lavelle, Asta Meldal Lynge, Cameron Scott, Tilly Shiner and Nikhil Vettukattil. The exhibition will move through different phases over the month of June; new works will be added, existing works removed or re-staged allowing for a number of different exhibitions to be produced concurrently.

In addition to the normal opening hours, there will be a period of four days when the gallery will only be open after sunset. Here, work will be shown which requires a dark space and the natural conditions will allow existing elements to be seen in a different context.

juice presents the sound of air that yields to make way for planes moving through a sky poured and cast in concrete; standing tall surrounded by easy stud walls. The things inside the circle are organized by cranes that are lifting and delivering, staging a world view on top of the minutes that ask everything of you. And as the siren of a passing emergency spirals around the corner, the penguin suddenly comes to epitomize the very notion of elegance upon diving into the water.

The exhibiting artists are all part of the Acme Studios/CSM Associate Studio Programme. Developed from the ongoing collaboration between Acme Studios and Central Saint Martins through the research project Double agents the Programme is a unique, pro-active and long-term initiative providing highly affordable studio space to graduates of the BA Fine Art course.

Each round runs for two years and is supported by a series of studio visits by artists, writers and curators. The first studio opened in a new build UAL Hall of Residence and studio complex in Stockwell in 2013. The second studio opens in October this year in another UAL Hall of Residence at Elephant and Castle.
