Postgraduate Degree Show, Umeå Academy of Fine Arts, “Between the Devil and the Deep Sea – Satellite Show”

Stockholm, 6.4–6.18 2015

Galleri Andersson/Sandström is proud to present a selection of new works by the graduates of Umeå Academy of Fine Arts’ master programme – a satellite show.

The exhibition Between the Devil and the Deep Sea (Satellite Show) manifests the culmination of five years of study, and display a wide range of practices and ideas. Works include the whole span of practices; performance art, sculpture, photography, drawing, painting, audio and video. The students have developed their independent practices, specific to their personal intentions and temperaments. The title Between the Devil and the Deep Sea simply refers to the challenging time period between the students’ art education and the initiation of their professional careers.

The first presentation by the recent graduates was an institutional exhibition during May 16-31, at Bildmuseet in Umeå. In collaboration with Galleri Andersson/Sandström, the former students are given an opportunity to exhibit new works within the context of a commercial gallery in Stockholm.
