Malmö Art Academy’s Annual Exhibition 2021
Welcome to the Annual Exhibition 2021 which will be the second digital exhibition in Malmö Art Academy’s 26-year history, and even though we are getting familiar with online exhibitions, we are longing for the moment when we can physically open our doors and meet in person at what usually marks the spring awakening in Malmö: The Annual Exhibition at Malmö Art Academy.
We are now more than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, and we look back at an academic year with continuous challenges, one of them being the border closures between Sweden/Denmark and Norway/Sweden – separating a larger group of the art academy’s students from their studios for a longer period of time. They have tirelessly continued to make works from their living rooms and bedrooms – at times experiencing a sense of online fatigue and a longing to share a physical space, but also learning new ways to think through the online possibilities. The students at Malmö Art Academy have shown incredible dedication and great initiative in finding ways of overcoming the obstacles and have continued to work throughout this year despite the pandemic.
This year students will present a variety of works in this online exhibition, some created directly for the online format, while others will show documentation of works intended to be experienced physically, which they have worked on in their studios the past year. Several students have made collaborative projects, and there will be live performances as well as a video screening during the opening event. All students at Malmö Art Academy are participating in the Annual Exhibition and thanks to the support and dedication of teacher Youngjae Lih, who has been in charge of the annual exhibition, we can welcome you to join us for the online opening evening 12th of May and to engage with the wonderful works of the students at Malmö Art Academy during 12th May–11th June 2021.
