In 2020, Steneby Konsthall had an open call, asking for answers to the question, What is material-based art? After hundreds of fantastic replies we selected 16 artists who show the breadth of what materials can be. This exhibition shows the importance of craft in society, and why being a material-based artist is noteworthy.

A digital Vernissage was held, featuring an introductory lecture by Elisabeth Yanagisawa Avén. You can see the lecture here.

This exhibition was kindly funded by Kulturrådet.
