Dear Friends & Colleagues,
It is with excitement that I announce I have accepted a position as the Executive Director and Curator of the Kentucky Museum of Arts and Craft (KMAC), Louisville, Kentucky, USA. KMAC is a boutique museum focusing on Contemporary art, Design and Craft at a moment when lines between disciplines are being blurred by artists and designers working in traditional ways. I look forward to producing high quality exhibitions with creators from around the world in this new venue starting in January 2012.
Unfortunately as a result, I must simultaneously announce that my own space will be staging its last installation with a piece by Tris Vonna-Michell running daily through December 23rd. I sincerely Thank You for your support especially those collectors, curators, writers, and artists that have endorsed the gallery during my almost 15 years in Sweden. Stockholm art life is vital and I look forward to maintaining contact whilst in my new position.
I hope that the gallery has offered you a contemplative and lasting experience of critical contemporary art. My gratitude is with the artists that trusted me to stand before an audience as a representative of their ideas. I am humbled by the opportunity to work with every one of you.
Stockholm, December 2011
