Director for Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden
The boundary-defying and passionate visions that guide the work at Tensta Konsthall have drawn attention both nationally and internationally these past 10 years. The exhibition programming has focused on international contemporary art, and has mainly involved original in-house productions of exhibitions. Right now, Tensta Konsthall is showing DADALENIN, artist Rainer Ganahl’s first major solo exhibition in Scandinavia.
The site, located in Tensta in Stockholm, is the point of departure for our work, and part of the programming involves school and educational projects. The institution has also initiated collaboration with the City of Stockholm and its development program for the Järva area, to which Tensta itself belongs. We are looking for a director that can continue this work.
