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.

PUBLIC IMAGE is a collection of new work by Jamie Hosegood marking the culmination of his time as the inaugural recipient of the year-long Helen Scott Lidgett Studio Award, part of Acme Studios' Residency & Awards Programme.

The exhibition presents a selection of Hosegood’s paintings in which he explores the medium's ongoing theoretical relationship with the photograph as source and subject.


The Helen Scott Lidgett Studio Award forms part of Acme Studios’ Residency & Awards Programme and Central Saint Martins’ new initiatives to support their Fine Art graduates. This award aims to provide a bridge between art school and practice as a professional artist by awarding a recent MA graduate a rent-free studio for 12 months together with a bursary of £5,000, and the opportunity to access curators, other professional artists and networking opportunities. The award also provides mentoring by members of the Helen Scott Lidgett committee, to the selected graduate, and all those who apply.

This award – a partnership initiative between Acme Studios and Central Saint Martins – is jointly funded for the next three years by Acme and the Helen Scott Lidgett Fund.
