Well, I got tired enough of working from home and sad enough about everyone moving away from Stockholm when the curatorial masters is over that I’m starting a collective/organization for curators/art workers based in Stockholm. Our aim is to make exhibitions, be a sounding board for ideas, act as a shared library for both reading material and equipment, and to provide a support system for all young curators who want to take part. Found a great office space for SUPER cheap and now it’s just a matter of signing the contract, finding some furniture to fill our sunny 40 sq.m. room on gorgeous Birger Jarlsgatan and plan the moving-in party!

Sitting right now at a cafe getting all the paperwork together and as you can see my hair is being super spastic, looping all over the place.

I’m glad to soon say goodbye to expensive cafe lattes and have a real office to call home, not to mention all the exciting projects to come!

Visions of the Now, an international festival and congress on the subjects of art and technology, will take place at Fylkingen in Stockholm on May 24–26, 2013.

New values are being created as a consequence of the rapid pace of technological progress. Through the filters of art, technology and the future, we will investigate where the ‘now’ is situated, while focusing on the impact of technology on humanity, society and artistic practice.

Visions of the Now is a reconsideration of the 1966 festival and congress Visioner av Nuet, which was initiated by Fylkingen and held at Tekniska Museet in Stockholm. This updated version takes place nearly half a century later, in a world that is fully immersed in the technology that in 1966 was still called ‘the new’. What are our visions of the present — now, and what do we imagine for the future?

This occasion brings together a group of international artists, musicians, theorists and scientists to perform real-time research on the now, in lectures, panels and open discussions under the themes: Technology, Values, Image, Music, Language and Environment. The festival will also manifest the interplay between art and technology — at this exact moment in time — with new art and music performances, sound pieces, installations and screenings.

Here I am giving a talk Monday evening on invitation from Jacquelyn Davis’s Foxhole series, which invites curators, artists and other creatives to share their work and brainstorm future projects to collaborate on.

Art Diary - March and a bit of April

So many things to tell you about! I hit the ground running when I arrived in Stockholm; it was light outside and everyone was happy to see the sun (and it made the transition from New York just that little bit easier). Here are the things I’ve seen, in the order I saw them:

Now if only I could focus my energy on my OWN projects!

Went through my photobooth stream and found this picture of me glassy-eyed and sorrowful that I took the day before I left Stockholm.

"I hope people will think of this era of the museum as a time that was certainly not predictable or boring, where an experimental atmosphere prevailed and the intuitions and impulses of artists were trusted […] Let’s show that the museum is not just some sort of empty white container which is stiff and rigid and defined once and for all, but an open, exciting place, where artists want to be, and people want to go."
Daniel Birnbaum, Director of Moderna Museet Stockholm

Reason #785 to move to Sweden: When you live in Stockholm, you always have at least 8 mutual Facebook friends in common with famous artists.

It was 12°C (53°F) in Stockholm today and people are dressed like they’re sitting on a porch in Georgia in August drinking sweet tea, a hand-held fan three inches from their face.
I hope all those bare toes get frost bite.

Made this calendar to get me through the next few weeks in a sane way. The scary black text at the bottom read: thesis deadline! & defense!
