Tag Team Studio is an open and flexible platform with a focus on regional production of contemporary art. We are open Friday to Sunday during all exhibitions, or by appointment.

Platform Stockholm is an arts organization based in Stockholm, Sweden, dedicated to the development of cultural production through building digital infrastructure that supports shared resource initiatives. Platform Stockholm manages a large studio collective, operates a gallery space and creates software for use in artistic institutions.

We will be using the Curatron software system as our method to define the artists within the group of the residency. Curatron is an online software tool developed to involve artists directly in the curatorial selection process. Each artist applying for the residency can view the entire pool of applicants and select other applicants they would like to spend their residency with. Curatron then calculates the final group from every applicant’s selection.
