On the Tip of My Tongue is a series of events and unique projects as well as an exhibition in the usual 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 actual event has ended.” – Richard Julin and Tessa Praun, Curators of the exhibition.

On the Tip of My Tongue occurs gradually with several opening dates. Through its own unique choreography, On the Tip of My Tongue extends temporally with events taking place in different locations both virtually and sonically, both indoors and outdoors. This arrangement means that visitors cannot take in the entire exhibition by a singular visit to Magasin 3 this autumn.

Miranda July’s project We Think Alone began July 1st and took the form of emails that were sent out every Monday through the 11th of November. The project ended on 11/11/13. Read more on wethinkalone.com.

From the 8th to the 10th of August, Magasin 3 presented Stina Nordenstam’s sound installation Tänk dig en Människa at the music festival Way Out West in Gothenburg. The part of the exhibition that takes place at Magasin 3 in Frihamnen opened on September 13th.
