- What’s on
Studios: 2022 is a showcase of the diverse practices and work developed as part of ACE’s annual Studio Program – a fully-supported professional development opportunity for South Australian artists.
Guest curated by Megan Robson (Associate Curator, Exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney), the exhibition features the diverse disciplines of the 2022 Studio Program artists, including photography, sculpture, installation, printmaking and performance.
Shaye Dương utilises traditional processes of fabrication to question perceived truths about recognisable objects from the past and the present; Chelsea Farquhar brings together objects and materials from different worlds to explore notions of the theatrical, humour and the uncanny; Dani Reynolds’ work takes as its starting point an exploration into world records, popular culture, performance and fame within the context of the Guinness World Records; using labour-intensive and technically challenging analogue photographic techniques and processes, Cecilia Tizard takes the studio itself as a concept, a working space and a source of inspiration; through his focus on the construction, circulation, and repositories of knowledge, Ash Tower has been investigating the relationship between atomic technology and funerary architecture.
The 2022 Studio Program is supported by partnerships with the City of Adelaide, Creative Partnerships Australia Plus 1 Program, Helpmann Academy, Adelaide Central School of Art, and Firstdraft. It is also supported by the generous contributions of private donors through the Studio Program Donors Circle.
