In collaboration with collector Erika Hellman and Svenska Hus, the series of large exhibitions of new and international art, previously done in Stockholm by Carl Kostyál Gallery now reaches an audience in the whole Öresund region. Located in a building complex familiar to those locally that are interested in art, the project wishes to contribute to an already healthy art scene in Malmö.

Malmö Sessions is an intense exhibition in the spirit of participation. The exhibiting artists are active and known on an international art scene and three of them will also be participating in the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019 (Da Corte, Mulleady and Rafman). What connects the artists is a radical and expressive method in portraying the people, objects and subjects in our contemporary culture.

Carl Kostyál brought an extensive presentation of the work by Alex Israel to Stockholm in 2013. This was followed by large and institution-style exhibitions by Petra Cortright and Alex Da Corte in 2014, Austin Lee and Zhao Zhao in 2015 and Jon Rafman in 2016, to name but a few. A local group of artists headed by Alfred Boman, Jim Thorell and Karl Norin has also been shown in various constellations. Group exhibitions has shown the work of Klara Lidén, Matias Faldbakken, Jana Euler, Yngve Holen, Katja Novitskova, Fredrik Vaerslev, Ed Atkins, Oscar Murillo, Timur Si-Qin, Pamela Rosenkranz and many more. Carl Kostyál Gallery has its headquarters on Savile Row in London, where solo shows by Gina Beavers, Dora Maurer, Austin Lee, Jonathan Binet, Alfred Boman, Piotr Lakomy, Yu Honglei, Sara Cwynar, Peter Schuyff, Gedi Sibony, Helen Marten, Peter Coffin has taken place amongst many others. Since 2018 Carl Kostyál is also running an artist residency at Masseria Fontana di Vite close to Matera in south Italy.

Erika Hellman, collector and CEO of Gullringsbo Egendomar, has been working closely with Carl Kostyál for over a decade and has not only built a prominent collection of art by international and young but established artists. She has also actively co-produced exhibitions, done donations to museums and an enthusiastic lender to exhibitions. For this occasion, Erika Hellman is releasing a catalogue over Gullringsbo konstsamling, the first in a series to come.

Svenska Hus AB is one of Sweden’s biggest privately owned real estate companies. It develops properties in a sustainable manner and shares the eternal perspective for business with its’ mother company Gullringsbo Egendomar. The collaboration with Carl Kostyál comes from the insight that supporting contemporary art is a contribution towards a sustainable society.

Press is welcome to the private view on 18 May, 6–8pm, in the company of many of the artists, such as Jon Rafman, Gina Beavers and Austin Lee. The opening is followed by an afterparty organized by artist Ilja Karilampi with the danish act Erika de Casier performing along the dj SWEYN from London. RSVP necessary.
