ACE Open online

Each year, ACE Open hosts five fully-supported South Australian artist studios through its Studio Program. Places are awarded through a competitive application process and support outstanding applicants who display strong artistic merit and commitment to their practice, who are engaged in an active program of professional development and/or career opportunities during the Program period.

As part of SALA (South Australian Living Artists) Festival, for the month of August, we will be introducing each of our five studio artists, and their practices, through a series of online video profiles.

Meet a few of ACE Open’s 2020-2021 studio artists in the videos below! More videos added weekly.
