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.
