Making of..! Malmö is an international multidisciplinary and participatory art event that aims to strengthen professional networking and give insight in contemporary art production. What happens when artists work in the same space, for one week, interacting with each other and with the audience?
Seven international artists from different fields will transform Galleri Rostrum into an experimental laboratory where all participating artists will build the exhibition from scratch and create collectively, side by side, for one intense week between the 4th and the 10th of August. During that period the gallery will be open for the public with the idea that anyone can influence, contribute and witness the process for several hours each day. The ongoing artistic collaborations will be fully process-based, improvised, spontaneous and community-oriented as there is a strong urge to work together between different disciplines in processes of exchange.
Making of..! Malmö is the third edition, the two previous projects were successfully implemented in Joensuu/Finland (2021) and Vilnius/Lithuania (2022).
The project is kindly supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland (Taike).
About Making of..!
Making of..! represents a new model of artistic production and exhibition, where artists are not isolated individuals but social beings, constantly interacting and learning from each other and from their environment. It challenges the traditional notion of the artist as a genius, and replaces it with a more collaborative and democratic approach to art-making. Making of..! is a celebration of art as a living process, not a fixed product, and a reminder that creativity is not confined to the studio, but can thrive in the streets, the parks, the galleries and the hearts of people.
