In 2012 Vasli and Souza moved to the city of Malmö - a multicultural city in the south of Sweden - where they decided to develop an art space dedicated exclusively to photographic practice. Galleri Vasli Souza is located in the basement of an old hat factory building at Gustav Adolfs Torg and will be a centre for contemporary photography to thrive and develop in the heart of the city.
The medium of photography allows for a broad range of lens based artistic practices to develop ideas and concepts. The exploration of new techniques and different appropriations of the traditional gallery space is one of the majors concerns for Vasli Souza.
The space is intended to promote a multicultural philosophy through the diffusion of artists from different parts of the globe. Vasli Souza Gallery is interested in concepts specifically relating to cultural studies, covering popular and often unnoticed nuances of life within power structures, social class, gender, nationalism, etc.
The gallery is not only an space for exhibition, many of the artists who will show their work will also present talks and workshops for the public to attend. Our program for 2013/2014 will present photographers work from Australia, Brazil, England, Italy, Japan, Finland, Norway, Russia and U.S.A.
