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.

Summer Ready/ Some Are Ready/ So Ready is an exhibition of new work by Emma Corrall, the 2014-15 recipient of the Helen Scott Lidgett Studio Award.

Implementing cultural techniques that operate between art and anthropology, retail and the fitness and health industry, Emma’s practice poses questions around consumer culture, object ontologies and biopolitics.

Working across video, sculpture, ceramics and digital prints the installation proposes a space deeply permeated with human touch and desire. The materiality of each medium employed is presented in a direct relationship with physicality to construct a non-hierarchical environment, whereby both tangible objects and the human perception are destabilised.

The Helen Scott Lidgett Studio Award forms part of Acme Studios’ Residency & Awards Programme and is a partnership initiative between Acme and Central Saint Martins, jointly funded by Acme and the Helen Scott Lidgett Fund. It provides a rent free studio for twelve months, a stipend, as well as mentoring and exhibiting opportunities.

Summer Ready/ Some Are Ready/ So Ready will be the final exhibition at the Acme Project Space.

Between 1996 and 2012 Acme received £3.2m of capital funding from Arts Council England which supported the creation of six permanent affordable studios in London: Copperfield Road, Fire Station, Galleria, Harrow Road, Leven Road and Matchmakers Wharf. This resulted in 186 studios and 12 work/live units in four London boroughs.
