Lately artist run exhibition platforms have gained new momentum on the Scandinavian art scene.
The spaces come in different sizes, have different lifespans and at times very different ideological pursuits. Common for them all, though, is that they depend on the goodwill of artists ready to invest their time in creating alternatives to the commercial galleries and government institutions.
Artist run spaces can be difficult to spot when browsing mainstream media so in every issue of Opaque we’ll give a short presentation of a space that we think you should pay a visit to.
Another Space is a project space for art and architecture, initiated by curator Marte Danielsen Jølbo and architect Nicola Louise Markhus.
As a combined gallery, project space and shared office, Another Space will be a meeting place for spatial exploration, collaboration and discussion.
ANOTHER SPACE: “We wish to instigate immersions and critical approaches to the cross-disciplinary field and its potentials, through presenting and discussing current tendencies within art, architecture and society.”
AS: “As a non-profit working and exhibition space, we wish to enable experiment, research and reflections on artistic and architectural practices in a wider philosophical, theoretical, historical and social perspective.
Our curatorial approach is further based on concerns for spatiality, materiality, sensation, imagination and craftsmanship.”
