wednesday projects

Most Wednesdays since August 1997 an artist is invited to do a project in the café area of Y-1. The "wednesday projects" provide a quick way of exhibiting work and gives the audience an overview of what's going on in young swedish art at the moment.


In May 1998 swe.de invited over a hundred artists to participate in a group exhibition. All had had some previous contact with the gallery during the last years.
The artists hung their own work until the gallery was stuffed.
