ACE Open Summer Party


The party will take place on Saturday 9 December, from 3pm to 7pm.

ACE Open, ACE Across and Lion Arts Centre Courtyard.

Entry is as free as a bird in the wild.

ACE Open are throwing their inaugural Summer Party, and we reckon it’s gonna be a cracker.

There are going to be a bunch of cool things happening there. It’s probably best to dot-point them out for ease of reading.

  • A mini golf installation called Dazzle Mountain Miniature Golf Adventure Parkby local artist Dominique Keeley will transform the Lion Arts Centre Courtyard.
  • Some of Adelaide’s coolest makers will showcase their wares at ACE Open’s first Makers Market, including Clay by KhoaGood StudiosHaneen MartinKarlien van RooyenNadikaNoun Movement BooksOlivia Kathigitis and more.
  • Antipodes gin are setting up a cocktail bar.
  • The night will be a last chance to go see 2017 exhibitions ‘Next Matriarch’ (ACE Open) and ‘Filter’ (ACE Across).
  • There will be a few performances on the go, including:
    – At 5pm Thomas Capogreco and Rohan Goldsmith will be closing Tara O’Conal’s Filter exhibition with an improvised sound performance using acoustic percussive elements along with modular synth sounds.
    – At 6pm, as part of the Dazzle Mountain Miniature Golf Adventure Park, a selection of Adelaide’s premier amateur drag queens will take on Kasey Chambers’ biggest hits in a playful subversion of Australiana classics.
  • A Meat-the-Curator BBQ, and
  • A raffle.

That’s a lot of things.

A lot of very very good things.
