Kate Broad

Fire Station Residency
2005-2010

Kate Broad’s practice is committed to the discipline of drawing exploring the significance of landscape and the documentation space. During her residency at the Fire Station, she was selected for the Sarah Greengrass Memorial Award for Research in Drawing. The last five years have seen Broad’s dance practice emerge, as she participates in and documents Real Time composition, random action and choreographed movement.

Selected exhibitions include Alternative Arts Organisation Summer Show, Royal College of Arts, London (1995); Zella Gallery, London (1997, 1999); St George’s Healthcare Trust, London (2001); The Lithuanian Embassy, London (2001); Freshart 02, Business Design Centre, London (2002); Stick ’em Up! and Reduced, Century Gallery, London (2003); Menier Gallery, London (2005); The Anatomy of Making Choices, Bow Quarter, London (2011) and Dance in Focus, City Hall, London (2012).

Fire Station Residency 2005-2010

Acme's residency at the Fire Station is one of the most directly supportive schemes for artists in the United Kingdom, providing combined studio and living space at low rents, as well as a half rent residency for a deaf or disabled artist. This five year fixed-term residency scheme is intended to allow artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and professional careers, and less time working to survive. 2005-2010 residents were selected by former Acme co-director Jonathan Harvey, arts consultant Tessa Jackson and artists Hayley Newman, Erika Tan and Julie Umerle.
