Index is based in the centre of Stockholm and offers an ambitious program of exhibitions, events and learning activities for a wide range of audiences. The program includes emerging artists with specifically produced new work, alongside presentations by artists from previous generations shown in a new perspective. Larger projects are accompanied by an extensive public program, often produced in collaboration with other organizations in Stockholm and abroad, with talks and film screenings, music, dance and poetry events. Index takes risks and opens up various ways to encounter contemporary culture and debate. Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015, Index is today one of the most important and longest-standing spaces for contemporary art in Scandinavia.

“One can hardly overestimate the importance of experimental institutions, which work more freely than major museums and commercial galleries. In Stockholm, Index is perhaps the most convincing example of such a platform for new generations of artists, both Swedish and international. Index presented a show by Eija-Liisa Ahtila long before she became a big name. The same is true for Wolfgang Tillmans and the duo Elmgreen/Dragset. Index also re-introduced artists that had great importance in previous decades and helped to retrieve their relevance, such as Sture Johannesson and J O Mallander. Index is, in short, a key institution for the Scandinavian art scene.” – Daniel Birnbaum, Moderna Museet
