Best Before Collective
Best Before Collective is a newly formed artist-run initiative based in Stockholm. We are a diverse group of artists, curators, art enthusiasts and other kinds of creators, with different backgrounds and knowledge. We want to use this wide range of abilities and learn from each other as we produce exhibitions and other arts activities together, with the aspiration to highlight art and artists that might not be shown in established galleries or institutions.
Not everything will last forever, and there is something beautiful in what is only living in the present moment. The here and now. Materials will wither and fall apart, opportunities come and go, groups will form and disintegrate. But matter does not seize to exist, instead it transforms into something different, leaving trails and new possibilities. Best Before Collective wants to highlight art that deals with temporality, that focuses on the here and now but is aware of what art leaves to the future.
