very bad news for the swedish scene!
Signal is forced to close down
Dear Friends, Colleagues and Audience,
It is now definite that Signal- Center for is forced to close down in after obtaining the final decisions from our main financiers.
After many years of petitioning the Swedish Arts Council of Region Skåne and the City of Malmö, the economical situation has not changed.
The main financiers have individually chosen not to respond to Signal’s appeal for securing the basic funding needed to continue the exhibitions and activities., the
We cannot continue to provide a qualitative and professional programme, an international network and a local infrastructure without adequate resources.
We are therefore forced to terminate a successful organisation that has in its ten years developed into a natural meeting place for both audience and
practitioners within the field of contemporary art, a “city trademark” and a significant on the international scene. For this we are truly sorry.
We want to thank all our collaborators throughout the years, all the artists and participants in our programme, in the Artist Archive, in our residency programmes
and international exchanges. We regret that we cannot offer you the resources of Signal in the future.
Finally and above all we want to thank our fantastic audience for the great support and interest you have shown in Signal. Thank you so very much!
You can find the support letters here.
