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.

‘Adjacent Practice Colliding Daily’ is an experiment. The two adjacent galleries in the Acme Project Space will be used as artists’ and curators’ studios to test the distinctions between places of production and display. This will be a collaboration between Acme artists Ninna Bohn Pedersen (Adrian Carruthers Award), RafaÅ‚ Zajko (Chelsea Studio Award) and curators Anna Clifford, Matan Daube, Katherine Finerty, Dunya Kalantery, Gregory LeÅ„czuk and Victor Wang (RCA Curating Contemporary Art). Artists and curators will be working together in the space for the three week duration, unfolding as a continuous event open to the public.

The show continues Acme’s annual collaboration with the Royal College of Art, Curating Contemporary Art MA, whereby first - year students undertake a series of studio visits to artists who are part of Acme’s Residency, Awards & Community Programme. Following detailed research and planning the students then lead on an exhibition proposal and manage all stages of the process to fruition, receiving support and advice from college tutors and Acme. The project provides an opportunity for students to put into practice their skills and knowledge accumulated during their studies and provides a framework for Acme artists to encounter and develop critical dialogue with young curators.
