Umeå Academy of Fine Arts Master exhibition, “Meanwhile”

Stockholm, 5.23–6.8 2019

The Academy of Fine Arts Master exhibition is the final exhibition of a two-year long process of intensive discussions, research and work. For the young artists it is an opportunity to reach out and show their work to the public. For the visitor it gives the chance of an insight into discourse within the field of contemporary art, the questioning of new materials and the evaluation of traditional ones. It poses questions, triggered by changes in the way we see and touch the world, both its tangible and its virtual realities. It is also a survey of the tension between a globalised discussion of how our world is visually represented and the experiences of a local reality meanwhile.

Participating artists: Martin Arvidsson, Johannes Blomgren, Jonas Börjesson, Laura Cemin, Siri Elfhag, Adrián Espinós Ferrero, Moa Gustafsson Söndergaard, Jonne Hansson, Agatha Lewandowski, Ingvild Melberg Eikeland, Ingeborg Paulsrud, Alex Rosa, Sally von Rosen, Linda Samuelsson and Peter Stridsberg.

The Master’s programme at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts is a two-year and internationally oriented programme that follows a Bachelor’s degree.
