In the second episode of the Artist-Run Network Europe (ARNE) podcast, Ormston House’s Niamh Brown speaks with independent curator and co-director of Juxtapose Art Fair, Pam Grombacher.
Pam Grombacher is an independent curator based in Aarhus, Denmark. In 2021, Grombacher assumed the role of co-director of the inaugural Juxtapose Art Fair, a biennale for artist-run organisations in Aarhus, Denmark. At Juxtapose, she leads the Nordic Visitors Program, runs the Think Tanks, and focuses on the fair’s approach to sustainability. It was here that she discussed the topic of sustainability during the “Talking Change” conference organised by ARNE and Copenhagen-based Syndicate of Creatures. In this episode, Niamh and Pam discuss her involvement with Juxtapose, her ideas around sustainability, and her plans for the future.

About Artist-Run Network Europe:
Artist-Run Network Europe (ARNE) was a European project with focus on artist-run initiatives co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. In the course of two and a half years (October 2020–April 2023) the project hosted a range of activities, including exhibitions, conferences, workshops and lectures. The aim of ARNE was to strengthen the self-organised artist-run sector in Europe with focus on local and international cooperation, and to create a simple information framework for art professionals and art students, namely through a collaborative online platform, Artist-Run Resource Centre (ARRC).
Ormston House’s involvement in the ARNE project was co-funded by the Arts Council of Ireland and Limerick Arts Office.
