IASPIS Open Studios Autumn 2022

October 11, 2022 1–9pm

13 artists and duos from five continents contribute installations, drawings, pictures, designs, films, sculptures, performances, and much more for this edition of IASPIS’ hallmark event. Along with the Stockholm award recipients, grant recipients from Umeå and Göteborg as well as the International Dance Program will participate in a particular way.

Oona Nelson, Weronika Bela & Ivar Hagren, Kemang Wa Lehulere, Dunne & Raby, Rahel Shawl, Isshaq Albarbary, Catherine Anyango Grünewald, Sara Kaaman, Jenny Magnusson, Geoff Robinson, Funduk (Matteo Locci & Başak Tuna), Ángel Manuel Ramírez Roque and Mona Namér give us an insight into their ongoing processes.

There is no attempt to combine all the methods discussed here into a single, all-encompassing issue because it is not possible. Instead, it is the uniqueness of each artist and creative team that makes Open Studios a dynamic illustration of the diversity found in both the Swedish and global contemporary art sectors.
