ACE Open and Country Arts SA Residency and Touring Exhibition
ACE Open, Adelaide and Country Arts SA have announced a new partnership, which aims to support artists and audiences in regional South Australia through the development of the inaugural ACE Open x Country Arts SA Open House Residency and a six-venue touring exhibition beginning in 2020 drawn from ‘ACE Open’s 2017 South Australian Artist Commission’.
Photographer, digital illustrator and jewellery-maker, Kerry Youde, is the successful recipient for the residency and will be undertaking a month-long position at ACE Open’s CBD residential studio to work on developing her practice. This opportunity awards the artist a $6,000 fee and a mentorship with visual artist Sue Kneebone.
‘This is an amazing opportunity to focus on and develop my practice. I am also very much looking forward to developing new connections while expanding my professional network,’ says Youde.
Youde’s application was commended by the selection panel for her ambition to create meaningful exchanges with metropolitan artists and to draw from and contribute to wider reciprocity between the broader industry.
‘Domestic Arts’ by Sera Waters was the 2017 commission and it will now tour the regional areas of Bordertown, Seppeltsfield, Goolwa, Mount Gambier, Port Pirie and Murray Bridge, from June 2020. This body of work explores the contemporary significance of traditional home-crafts, drawn from the artist’s own history.
ACE Open is thrilled to be extending its activities and impact into regional areas through these two new initiatives. ‘As the only contemporary art space in South Australia, ACE Open is committed to developing art and artists in and from our state. This commitment extends far beyond Adelaide and our tour of Domestic Arts will offer regional audiences the chance to encounter work by an outstanding contemporary artist,’ said Liz Nowell, CEO ACE Open.
