Handels x Mejan 2022

As last year the students in Art Division is launching Handels x Mejan: an exhibition with four newly graduated master students from The Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm (also known as Mejan) at the SSE Campus. The exhibition is curated by the students in Art Division, SSE (also known as Handels), and will take place on campus (Sveavägen 65) between April 22 and June 10.

Handels x Mejan is a collaborative effort between SSE and newly graduated students from the Royal Institute of Art. The works in the exhibition are selected by SSE Art Initiative and Art Division based on topics and artistic expressions that we think are contemporary and will resonate well with current events and thus, today’s students.

Art Talks will take place within the SSE Bachelor course Art & Luxury, and they aim at giving business students insight into the life of a young artist. What is an artistic process? How do young artists think? How do current events impact processes, methods and themes?

Participating artists in Handels x Mejan 2022:

Nada Ali

Tim Høibjerg

Georg Nordmark

Cristian Quinteros Soto

Installations are taking part during week 16!

Vernissage Friday April 21, 18-19, Sveavägen 65.

The artists in the 2022 edition of Handels x Mejan challenge our experience of the present using very different approaches and processes. Nada Ali’s work explores the mutability of our collective memory, how we construct and re-construct history, and how we use our reading of history to define our present. In contrast, Tim Hoibjerg focuses on multiple imagined futures, with an ambivalence towards our perception of technological development which appear to hold a potential of simultaneous salvation and destruction. Cristian Quinteros Soto examines how changes to a physical space change the discourse existing within it. It tests the connections between the soul of a space – its Genius Loci – to dominant structures of knowledge and thought in society. Finally, Georg Nordmark’s work present a duality between entertainment and manipulation, highlighting the gamification of contemporary society while questioning its consequences. Combined, the work of the artists raises complex questions about how our perception affect our interaction with society – questions especially urgent to our time, and particularly interesting to consider in a context such as the SSE.
