Curating Art: Dance Concerts

26 Sep, 19:00

Accelerator has a collaboration with the International Master’s Programme in Curating Art at Stockholm University. The students create events in connection to themes that Accelerator wishes to highlight in the exhibition programme. Curator for Curating Art’s first event is Anne Vigeland. In relation to Tino Sehgal’s practice, she has chosen to collaborate with pavleheidler on their project Dance Concerts, initiated in 2016.

Dance Concerts is an artistic project that invites practitioners within the choreographic field to present ongoing work. At Accelerator, several artists will share the intimate acts of experimentation and learning with the audience. The intention is to give insight into the importance of labour within choreographic processes and to raise awareness on the structures that govern what is available to the public eye. The evening will consist of three sharings and The Assembly – a moderated conversation. 

Dance Concerts have previously been organised in collaboration with SITE Sweden and Weld. The first occasion of Dance Concert season 3 will now take place in relation to Accelerator’s inauguration exhibition with Tino Sehgal. The event wishes to address the renewed interest for dance and performance within contemporary exhibition contexts and to shed light on art that is concerned with the museum as a site of social exchange.


Thursday 26 Sep 7pm-10pm

The event is free, but capacity is limited. Register at internaccelerator@su.se by September 25th.
