From chaos to insight

From chaos to insight
– talks in collaboration with Grafikens Hus and The Swedish Exhibition Agency

Wednesday September 9 at 4–6 pm
Location: Marabouparken Art Gallery
Language: Swedish

In March of 2014 Grafikens Hus in Mariefred burned down to the ground. This extreme situation ignited many questions, among them what does a public art gallery mean to a community?

In collaboration with Riksutställningar (the Swedish Exhibition Agency), Grafikens Hus has organized four talks around these questions to take place during 2015. Among partners in this conversation series are Magasin III, Nationalmuseum, Marabouparken konsthall and Eskilstuna konstmuseum. International guests will be invited to reflect on these issues. Nina Beckmann, director of Grafikens Hus since 2012, will moderate the series of talks From Chaos to Insight.

Dialogue 3 at Marabouparken Art Gallery: On building a New Public Art Gallery
Does Sweden need yet another public art gallery? If one starts from the beginning again should one be building a physical gallery or are there alternatives? And who is to finance the venture?

The talk is free and open to all, but reservations are required. Limited space is available, first come first served. To make a reservation email: info@grafikenshus.se.
