We’ve made over two historical organisations, now help us make over our space! ACE Open is Australia’s newest independent, contemporary art organisation which seeks to proactively support visual artists across all stages of their careers. Established in 2017, ACE is built on the trailblazing 116-year history of its predecessors: the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia and the Australian Experimental Art Foundation.

Ahead of ACE Open’s official launch in July 2017, we’ve got some serious work to do – and we need your help!

We’re rolling up our sleeves and getting stuck into a series of building works that will transform ACE Open and provide increased opportunities for South Australian artists and audiences.

We will reconfigure the front room of our Lion Arts Centre gallery into a dynamic programming hub, where we will host talks, performances, professional development programs and other community events throughout the year.

We have also recently secured a secondary site, adjacent our current premises. We’re seeking support to convert this vacant office space into ACE Across, a gallery and project space for emerging and experimental artists. Alongside our existing studios and gallery, these spaces will help us realise our ambitious vision to be a national leader in the presentation and development of contemporary art and artists in South Australia.

What do we need? $15,000 for building works and space conversion.

When do we need it by? Preliminary works are already underway, but we need to greenlight the full project by the start of June – so our deadline for fundraising is Thursday 1 June.

ACE SPACE is your chance to get in on the ground floor of this leading South Australian arts organisation, helping us to literally build the space that will house future opportunities for emerging and experimental artists, robust critical discourse and public engagement events.

Whether you’re giving $2 or $2000, all donations are gratefully welcomed and are tax deductible, thanks to the Australian Cultural Fund. In late 2017, we will be launching a Patrons Program that will recognise all donations over $500.

Every dollar given will help shape the South Australian arts landscape in a tangible way, while your generous support will help kickstart ACE Open’s bright future through 2017 and beyond.

ACE Open is South Australia’s leading organisation for contemporary visual art and artists. Established in 2017, ACE is built on the trailblazing 116-year history of its predecessors: the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia and the Australian Experimental Art Foundation. 
 
In name and nature, ACE Open encapsulates an approach that is flexible and constantly evolving, placing generosity, collaboration and inclusivity at its core. 
 
ACE will expand the opportunities and context for art and artists in South Australia and beyond, through local, national and international commissions, presentations and partnerships; residencies; publications (including Broadsheet Journal); public programs; and professional development opportunities. 

Crucially, ACE is South Australia’s only representative in the national CAOs network of independent, publicly funded key visual arts organisations.
