New Småland is an inter-regional and international contemporary art project. It was initiated and is driven by a curatorial group, four art institutions, three regions and a university.

 

New Småland is an attempt to formulate long-term relationships, encourage experimentation and create conditions for critical and cultural sustainability. This idea is based on the view that all art institutions and actors in the three regions, irrelevant of economic or institutional conditions are equally important resources and nodes of knowledge in a common investigation of local and regional issues. By moving horizontally between the regional actors and combining local knowledge with international contemporary art and critical thinking, New Småland hopes to investigate and re-access the political, social and aesthetic landscape of Småland.

 

New Småland is organised and funded by Kalmar Art Museum, Kulturparken Småland, Vandalorum and Växjö Konsthall together with The Region of Jönköping County, Region Kronoberg and Regional Council of Kalmar County and Linnæus University with support from The Swedish Arts Council.
