discreet inauguration of skēnē, space for contemporary art.
During my week the serious is barred; no business allowed. Drinking, noise and games and dice, appointing of kings and feasting of slaves, singing naked, clapping of frenzied hands, an occasional ducking of corked faces in icy water—such are the functions over which I preside.
skēnē are very pleased to invite you to its first official celebration, coinciding with the Winter Solstice and the ancient feast of Saturnalia. The festivities mark the first gathering under our own auspices, at skēnē’s physical location Drottninggatan 6C in Malmö.
