The 2023 Porter Street Commission recipient, Kaspar Schmidt Mumm, will present his first major solo exhibition, ROCKAMORA, at ACE from June 10. Porter Street Commission, now in its third year, annually awards $20,000 to a South Australian artist at any stage of their career to create an ambitious new work to be presented as a solo exhibition at ACE in the following year. Kaspar Schmidt Mumm is a third-generation immigrant with Colombian, Pakistani and Canadian heritage, born in Germany and raised in Adelaide. Artmaking for him began as a desire to create a language that could cross cultural borders, a powerful answer to experiences of displacement. In the commissioned exhibition, Schmidt Mumm combines puppetry, papier-mâché, woodwork, upholstery, singing, improvisation and social theatre to deliver a largescale participatory sculpture. ROCKAMORA runs from June 10 to August 12, 2023. 

NOTE: The dates provided are current and speculative. Many Australian and international arts organisations remain closed in accordance with COVID-19 restrictions. Please refer to institutional websites for further details.
