Acme Studios — #26 40th Anniversary Website Commissions

Supporting Artists since 1972

#26 40th Anniversary Website Commissions

50 stories from The Acme Archive

In 2012, Acme sent an invitation out to all artist tenants to submit artworks for display on the home page of the website throughout 2013. The artists were given a specification to submit an image or video of the submitted work, with a theme that connected to Acme, whether that be buildings, artists, the making of art, the studio, supporting artists, bridging the gap between college and professional practice. 60 submissions were made, and of these 12 were selected, each to be displayed for a month. Prior to the display of the anniversary commissions, the same space on the website was used for a piece by Jock McFadyean called ‘Memory Lane’

The selected works for display on the website were
