Konsthall323 is an art-institution housed in a car, run by artists Frida Krohn and Ylva Trapp since 2010, based in Stockholm, Sweden.
Krohn & Trapp:
“We try to use the specificities of our space as possibilities. The back-seat of the car proved to be a perfect place for talks and discussions, the trunk can be used for a white-board-presentation in a symposium and most of all we can move where we are needed.
Bigger institutions stand still in marble and glass, we are flexible. Others serve espresso, we have coffee in thermos. Others fill huge auditoriums, we have two seats for an audience. Others organise six-months-residencies, we offer artists 100sek ($12) in gas-money and two days with the car.
We’ve been outside state-institutions, inside art-schools, in Umeå in the north of Sweden and in Stavanger in West Norway. During the last two years we have mainly operated from Saltsjöbaden, a wealthy suburb of Stockholm, Sweden, where the critical gaze of contemporary art is needed.
Now we have come to Seattle! The show we will produce at INCA is called “Great Views”, and will focus on a retrospect view of Konsthall323 and Konsthall323’s experiences in Seattle.”
