Rejmyre Art LAB
Rejmyre Art LAB is an artist-run organization and a long-term, place-based research project that creates spaces for making, reflection and intensive exchange. Our activities include an international artist residency program, intensive post-graduate and graduate student workshops, a platform for experimental and conceptual glass projects in the Reijmyre Glasbruk, public seminars and an annual exhibition program in Engelska Magasinet, as well as installations and interventions in and around the town of Rejmyre. Rejmyre Art LAB’s programming is born of a long-term engagement with the town of Rejmyre in the Östergötland region of Sweden. Rejmyre is located amongst the forests and lakes two hours southwest of Stockholm. With a population of approximately 1000, Rejmyre is a small factory town centered around the Reijmyre Glasbruk, a glass factory founded in 1810 and still in operation.
The purpose of our work together has been to create a post-institutional teaching and learning space; a non-hierarchical meeting place, for ourselves and others, to continue to grow, engage in sustained critique and explore topics of collective interest through self-organized, thematic engagements. Our research strands emerge organically from our time together the previous year.
