Pierre Bismuth, Tamara Henderson, Miranda July, Stina Nordenstam, Tino Sehgal, Dahn Vo

Curators: Richard Julin and Tessa Praun

On the Tip of My Tongue is a series of events and unique projects as well as an exhibition in the traditional sense. It includes artworks that point away from the site of the exhibition itself, towards other virtual or parallel existences and experiences.

”With this project we aim to trigger situations and experiences that linger as if “just out of reach,” to generate encounters that keep growing – in thought and through conversation – long after each initial encounter.”
– Richard Julin and Tessa Praun, curators of the exhibition.

On the Tip of My Tongue occurs gradually with three opening dates. Through its own unique choreography, the exhibition extends temporally with events taking place in different locations, both virtually and sonically, indoors and outdoors.

July 1st Miranda July’s project We Think Alone began. The project consists of emails that are sent out every Monday through the 11th of November. More than 95 000 people have signed up to the project so far. Subscribe at
