Restrictions are something we have grown accustomed to and have had to deal with during the pandemic. The restrictions have mostly been applied to humans. When ISSUES now opens its new permanent space at Vattugatan 13 in central Stockholm, we would like to celebrate what we are starved for and what art comes from — human interaction. Therefore, the artworks have been given restrictions, or parameters as we used to call it. When showing thirty-nine artists, this is not only for practical reasons. By restricting the format, we want to put forward the people. 50×40 cm are the dimensions each artist in the inaugural group show had to conform their contribution to. Some did, some did not.
ISSUES was founded in 2014 and has since produced site- specific projects with local and international artists in Stockholm. Now the dog years are over and Issues is launching a white cube space with represented artists (TBA).
