Work in Progress is a pop-up exhibition that presents the work of 20 Swedish and international contemporary illustrators working with content for children and young people. The artists have worked together in Lund for 48 hours. The outcome of these two intense, creative and challenging days is displayed at Stadshallen: LAB to give audiences a unique insight into the creative process itself. What is displayed in the exhibition, will not be fully developed works, but rather creative exercises or pieces in the making. The exhibition aims to highlight the process behind picture book making and invite us to reflect on the status of illustration as an art form.
