Utvalt aims to encourage works that are based on the crafts tradition but that preferably go beyond the traditional boundaries of expression and technique. Utvalt encourages collaborations in which practitioners with differing cultural and artistic approaches to crafts and tradition can create added values. Utvalt i Syd is organised by Form/Design Center, The Handicraft Association of Scania and The Crafts Center (KVHC).
Utvalt is a close and far-reaching collaboration between these three organizations and aims to stimulate development in the area, increase knowledge, awareness and strengthen the interest in crafts and form. Current round has been preceded by Utvalt i Skåne (Selected in Skåne) and opens up for the applicant with connection to all the southern counties: Skåne, Blekinge, Halland, Kronoberg, Kalmar and Jönköping counties.
Everyone who works with craftsmanship and artistic creation in their own name or together with others had the opportunity to apply. However, the application requires its own connection to one of the southern counties. An experienced jury selects the contributions to be represented in the exhibition.
