The Mill's Exhibition Space program highlights the practice of art-making and aims to make process more available to audiences.
This program is presented as a partnership between The Mill and the City of Adelaide.
Projects in The Exhibition Space aim to draw audiences deeper into the process of making, positioning them as central to artistic research. The Exhibition Space operates with a studio-like mentality where knowledge arises through participation and experimentation.
The Exhibition Space presents four 12-week residencies per year, alongside short feature exhibitions. Each resident artist will commit time to developing their practice through discussions, forums, workshops, research and artist talks - both with the artistic community and the general public. The Mill will expedite research by facilitating connections to community groups the artist may wish to engage with, to help broaden their practice.
The Mill believes art positions itself within transitions and passages; it opens opportunities for public incursions into the private and vice versa. Our residency program considers this as the potential performativity of practice.
