ACA’s new venue opens in partnership with the dental clinic Dovetail integrating contemporary art with innovative healthcare from a state of the art practice. The premises include a custom-built 18 x 5 metre gallery as well as site-specific installations commissioned for the surgeries.
ACA is continuing to develop dialogue between the urban and the rural; the ACAdovetail programme will be fed by work generated through residencies at the rural base. It will also develop artistic activities specific to the venue exploring the relationship between art and science. Centrally positioned in front of the Discovery Museum, and near Dance City and Centre for Life, ACAdovetail will contribute to the increasing cultural activity of this area.
