studio44 is a dynamic, contemporary artist-run organisation characterised by it´s diversity and openness to different forms of artistic expression. Currently consisting of some 30 visual artists who together manage the gallery space (256 + 26 sqm), showing their own work as well as inviting other artists to participate in themed exhibitions and seminars. studio44 cooperate with international artist-run galleries and have exhibited in Beijing, Berlin, Manchester and New York among other places. The work process is organic and democratic, allowing different approaches to exist side by side.
This year at Supermarket 2017, in acknowledgement of the theme 'Intimacy', we have curated a staged living room environment: 'A room of our own' where we have included various artworks from members of Studio 44 alongside our own private belongings. Thereby we are presenting ourselves as artists whilst simultaneously opening up the dialogue around the private/public realm that the artist inhabits. ‘A room of our own’ – an open invitation into the public/private realm of Studio 44 members. Exhibition coordinators: Mariana Ekner, Kjell Hansson, Geraldine Hudson, Helena Norell, Peter Varhelyi
