Handels x Mejan

Art Division launches Handels x Mejan: an exhibition in four parts with four newly graduated master students from The Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm (also known as Mejan in Sweden) at the SSE Campus. The exhibition is curated by the students in the SSE student organisation Art Division, and will take place on campus (Sveavägen 65) between April 19 and June 30.


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 introduce SSE students to up-and-coming artists who, like our students, are to embark on professional lives. Art Talks will take place within the SSE Bachelor course on Art & Luxury. 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 docurrent events impact processes, methods and the themes?

Art talks will be held April 20, 15-17, and April 21 15-17, on zoom. Links on tins link. Open for all.
