ACE Open provides transformative contemporary art experiences for artists and audiences from its CBD art space in Adelaide, South Australia.
As South Australia’s flagship contemporary art gallery, ACE Open presents a year-round program of free exhibitions by practicing South Australian, Australian and international artists. Its exhibitions, talks and events are held across its two exhibition spaces, ACE Open and ACE Across, which are located in the Lion Arts Centre in the west end of the city.
ACE Open publishes the acclaimed art publication Broadsheet Journal, and hosts an on-site studio program, as well as providing mentorship, professional development, advocacy and opportunity to South Australian artists, curators and art writers.
Established in 2017, ACE Open is built on the trailblazing 116-year history of its predecessors, the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia (CACSA) and the Australian Experimental Art Foundation (AEAF).
