ACE Open in partnership with SALA Festival presents If the future is to be worth anything: 2020 South Australian Artist Survey. Featuring ten local artists, collectives and support organisations at all points in their careers, the exhibition celebrates the breadth of art practice and critical perspectives emerging from South Australia’s artistic communities, and is ACE Open’s most ambitious project to date.
Over the past year, ACE Open’s Artistic Director, Patrice Sharkey, and Curator-in-Residence, Rayleen Forester, have been visiting artists, surveying the landscape of contemporary art in the state. Together, they have selected a diverse group of artists that embody a cross section of contemporary art production as opposed to a specific theme.
