It is now almost two years since the first exhibition, Malm1, was presented. Now it is time to present the second edition. The twelve artists featured in Malm1 have each chosen an artist for this years exhibition. The relay baton has been passed on to the next group of artists, who are exhibiting in Malm2:

The aim of the Malm exhibitions is to promote and present every other year contemporary art from our part of the world here at Malmö Konsthall. Artists from the Öresund Region are invited to take part and given the opportunity to exhibit new work. The purpose is to give us a broader insight into the dynamic and exciting art scene which is in our immediate vicinity and which so many people elsewhere in the world are talking about and exhibiting. Malmö has been called the City of Art, and we now wish to highlight the entire Öresund Region as an interesting and exciting art region. (Malm is the Swedish word for ore, from which one or more valuable elements or minerals can be extracted.)

The exhibition has the nature of a relay race, in which the artists featured in the most recent exhibition select the participants in the next one. The artists in Malm1 were Eric Andersen, Martin Erik Andersen, Nathalie Djurberg, Keld Helmer-Petersen, Lisa Jeannin, Jesper Just, Peter Land, Tova Mozard, Johan Röing, John Skoog, Astrid Svangren, and Kirstine Vaaben.

Welcome to the press viewing on Thursday 7 September at 11 am.
The opening is on Friday 8 September from 7-9 pm.
You are welcome to contact me for further information!

Next exhibition:
SARAH SZE
2 December 2006 – 18 February 2007
Sarah Sze, born in 1969 in Boston, USA
Lives and works in New York

Her sculptures are often large, spread-out, and airy, almost floating structures that respond to and work with the surrounding architecture. They consist of many different small objects close to everyday life, which have been carefully and thoughtfully linked into a complex network. With a technique that is both painterly and sculptural, and with the interplay between the individual parts and the whole, Sarah Sze explores the boundaries between art and everyday life.
