Sara Rossling
As a curator, I value collaborations and learning processes and engage in artistic responses to societal issues and public space, histories, climate change, cross-disciplinary thinking, and decolonial thought.
I am an independent curator and writer currently based between Malmö and Stockholm. I have curated and co-curated exhibitions, projects, and public programs in museums and art spaces in Sweden and internationally and worked at institutions such as Iaspis/ the Swedish Arts Grants Committee, the Public Art Agency Sweden, and the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm. Since 2020, I have worked part-time with public art, often with ArtPlatform. In addition, I have initiated and co-run residencies and research-oriented programs in various formats.
