Open Call 2019


Open Call 2019

In an increasingly individualised social sphere and commercialised art context how can we find methods for working together against the fragmentation of our lives and work? We believe the art space to be a meeting place where artists and the public can come together to share our different interests, experiences and knowledges. What kinds of platforms do artist and groups needs today to be able to work together and present work publicly? How can we push the boundaries of the white walled gallery to accommodate experimental practices?

We felt there is a need for exhibition platforms and spaces to meet. Through a new commission and exhibition in Marabouparken’s BOX, Open Call aims to build more opportunities for artists, groups and projects at the early stages of their practice. The platform seeks to develop work exploring questions of solidarity and collectivity as well as support for a wider peer group through a public programme of events.

The Open Call seeks to:

Provide opportunities for people to develop their practice through a new commission and exhibition in Autumn 2019
Open Call invites proposals for new work that explores themes of collectivity and solidarity.
Provide support for a wider peer group through a public programme of events
The Selected Open Call Project will receive:

10000SEK Commissioning Fee
10000SEK Exhibition Fee (Paid in accordance to MU-avtalet)
30000SEK Production Budget
An exhibition in Marabouparken’s BOX, September – October 2019
A new text on the project to accompany the exhibition.
Studio visits by Marabouparken
In addition to the fee and production budget Marabouparken will cover the costs of installing the exhibition.
Open Call builds on Marabouparken’s history in supporting the development of art practice through programmes such as P.A.N.K. (2004) which offered recent graduates from art schools across Sweden the chance to work and live in Sundbyberg. BOX is Marabouparken’s project space committed to supporting artists at an early stage in their practice.
deadline: November 14, 2018
