Supporting Artists since 1972

Natasha Muluswela

Acme Alternative Pathway Award

Natasha Muluswela is a visual artist whose intricately detailed pencil drawings explore the diversity of beauty and body positivity whilst simultaneously shaking off the sexualisation of the female body. Additionally, her work touches on socio-political issues such as racism, the marginalisation and discrimination of Black people. Natasha explores what it means for Africans to take up space in a Eurocentric society, away from the Diaspora.

Acme Alternative Pathway Award

Acme’s Alternative Pathway Awards is a Genesis Kickstart Fund project, supported by the Genesis Foundation. These awards have been created to support artists within their first five years of practice from groups currently underrepresented in the arts. The three selected artists will share a studio for six months, an individual £3,500 bursary, and the opportunity to work towards a public outcome of their work. They will receive mentoring and support from the recipient of Acme x OSE Fellowship.
