About the program
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 Residency program is presented as a partnership between The Mill and the City of Adelaide.
The program positions artistic process to the fore, allowing audiences direct access to creative research and making. During this residency The Exhibition Space operates with a studio-like mentality where knowledge arises through participation and experimentation. The Mill believes that art positions itself within transitions and passages; it opens up opportunities for incursions through relation. The Exhibition Space opens the creative process to the public in a way that positions the city’s community as foundational to artistic research and the creative process, thereby connecting people to cultural experience, insights, understanding and meaning. Louise Flaherty Memorial for Forgotten Plants is our second Residency, following on from our innaugural Exhibition Space Residency John Blines, memorias exspirare.
The Exhibition Space presents four 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 Exhibition Space is open to the public Monday to Friday, 10am - 4pm and at other times by appointment.
