This exhibition presents the encounter of sixteen graduating students from the Masters Program in Fine Arts at the Malmö Art Academy, which like Skissernas Museum is an integral part of Lund University. After having worked for many years in parallel in individual studios, their works are now given an opportunity to interact and communicate with each other. The exhibition title is inspired by the French author Georges Perec’s book Espèces d’espaces (published in English with the title Species of Spaces) from 1974. In the same way as Perec encourages the reader to look at everyday reality in new ways, as if we really never saw it before, the artists in this exhibition question and expand habitual ways of looking at the world.

The Museum of Sketches was founded in 1934 by Ragnar Josephson (1891-1966), during his time as Professor of Art History at the University of Lund (Sweden). The intention was to establish an archive of the creative process, or the path of the artist from the first idea to the finished work. The aim was to collect sketches, models and photographs to Public Art – as the study material relating to it was especially suited, by the frequent demand on abundant preliminary sketches.
