Abstract Possible: The Stockholm Synergies Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm January 12 – April 22, 2012
Abstract Possible is a long-term art project that studies the meanings of the concept “abstraction”, using contemporary art as its platform. With approximately 20 international participants, including the British conceptualist, Liam Gillick, the ambitious exhibition has been traversing the globe since November of 2010. Having already been in Malmö, Mexico and Zurich, the exhibition will spend the first third of 2012 in the newly-renovated Tensta art space. The project's curator is Maria Lind, who, for a year now, also happens to be the director of Tensta Konsthal. Various adjunct projects, seminars and film screenings will accompany the exhibition.
