Abstract Possible


Salón was invited by Maria Lind to create discursive frameworks, both live and online, around the exhibitions of Abstract Possible and the three main strands of abstraction addressed in them: formal abstraction, economic abstraction and withdrawal strategies. We seek to offer spaces that nurture a multifaceted discussion around and beyond the exhibition. The two main elements are:
