Acme's 2021/22 Early Career Award Artists
We are proud to announce Guiseppi Rodriguez Cambana (Goldsmiths MFA Award), Holly Buckle (Adrian Carruthers Award), Lisa-Marie Harris and Kristine Daukšte (Helen Scott Lidgett Award) as recipients of Acme’s 2021/22 early career awards.
Artists on Acme’s early career programme occupy a shared studio space at Warton House for one year to foster and encourage an environment of peer support, collaboration and critical engagement. Artists receive a bursaries to support their practice, and will engage with highly respected artists and curators during their time at Warton House, working towards a public presentation at PEER in 2022.
Open to artists who demonstrate an outstanding artistic practice, and who would otherwise lack the means to undertake such an opportunity, the awards give individuals the time and space to focus on developing their practice, enabling them to position themselves within the global cultural environment. Running since 2002, over 50 artists have benefitted from Acme’s early career programme, with 81% presenting solo exhibitions within 5 years.
Acme’s early career programme works in collaboration with Goldsmiths College, University of London and Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, Central St Martins, University of the Arts London, and Art Academy of Latvia. The awards are generously supported by the Jane Hamlyn and the Adrian Carruthers Memorial Funds, and the family of Helen Scott Lidgett.
