Over the past 30 years, William Scott (born 1962, San Francisco) has developed his own artistic practice while working at Creative Growth, an art center in Oakland where people with development disabilities are given the opportunity to work as artists. William Scott’s work is deeply personal, often using his own life story as a starting point. At the same time, his works reflects upon how it is to live in the United States today and raises questions regarding citizenship, community and cultural memory. Recurring themes include portraiture and city architecture. William Scott sees himself more as an architect than an artist and attempts to create people-friendly urban architecture in his work. He uses art as a tool to transform reality for the better by re-imagining the past and by creatively visualising a better and happier world. The exhibition William Scott is a collaboration with Studio Voltaire in London and Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland.
Sandra Mujinga (b. 1989) lives and works in Oslo and Berlin. Between 2010-2015, she studied at Malmö Academy and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in 2014. In her exhibition at Malmö Konsthall, Mujinga uses new technology as a starting point for examining the role of shadows and the shift between opacity and visibility. Mujinga’s art has connections to science fiction and Afro-futurism, and examines the relationship between man, animals and technology. The exhibition is a collaboration with MUNCH in Oslo.
