Past, Present, Future Exhibitional Situations at Index 2022

Index produces exhibitions, situations and processes exploring possible ways to work critically and experimentally with contemporary art. Index began 2022 with the performative exhibition Capable of Returning Home with Alva Willemark and Sybrig Dokter, followed by the exhibition I Am All the Selves That I Have Been featuring Fina Miralles (an exhibition presented together with Marabouparken konsthall and MACBA). Currently we present the exhibition, Tragedy (I can’t live if living is without you) by Linnea Hansander.

In parallel to these exhibitions, Index has also worked internationally recently curating the 2022 Afgang (MFA Degree Show) with 25 graduates from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ Schools of Visual Arts at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen. Index organized a seminar at ARCO Madrid and continued to develop our collaboration with Praksis (Oslo) and Publics (Helsinki).

Another spring highlight has been the release of our sound-only exhibitions, the Aural Exhibitions, which were presented in Venice during the opening of the 59th Biennale Art 2022 as part of the program organized by IASPIS. Index invited 10 curators and artists from several generations and geographies to contribute and we challenged all of them to expand on the idea of listening to an exhibition. These exhibitions are available for listening on Index’s website and via spotify.

And now, with summer just around the corner, we are already preparing the fall program which includes many connections to research-based practices and some exhibitional situations with different temporalities. Alva Willemark and Sybrig Dokter will be back with another journey into their performative relationship, Melanie Gilligan will open a short-term and intense exhibition and then we conclude the year with Kajsa Dahlberg. Dahlberg comes back to Index after her successful exhibition, A Room of One’s Own/A Thousand Libraries that took place in 2006. Her return anticipates the 25th anniversary of Index Foundation taking place next year.

Index is closed for the Swedish mid-summer holiday from 23-26 June but will continue to be open until 10 July.
