This spring, an extensive exhibition with works by Spanish Surrealist Joan Miró (1893 – 1983), one of the most noted artists of the 20th century, will be show at Waldemarsudde, Stockholm. The comprehensive presentation will feature poetical and visionary paintings, sculpture, drawings and textile works, all chosen with the aim to show the artist’s creative process. The exhibition offers a unique opportunity to study how the artist was inspired by everyday objects in his work. Miró’s social commitment is expressed through his notable original posters and in the experimental video, in which Miró is seen creating street art in Barcelona in the late 1960s. The exhibition has been made in collaboration with Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona and the art gallery Kristianstads konsthall. Read more about Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona

Archaeologists in Denmark are busy building one of the largest experimental archaeology reconstruction projects. But what colours would the Vikings have used?
Did Vikings paint their houses white or red? Which colours were popular, and when?
These questions were the focus of a furious debate among researchers during a seminar entitled “Colourful Vikings” hosted by the Centre for Historical-Archaelogical Research and Communication in Denmark (as also known as Sagnlandet Lejre).
Archaeologists at Sagnlandet Lejre are currently reconstructing a full sized royal Viking hall.When finished, it will measure 60 metres long, be slightly oval shaped, and built from planks of oak. But exactly what colours the original hall was painted with, remains a mystery.

Flowing brushwork and vibrant colours distinguish the Swedish artist Carl Kylberg’s (1878-1952) paintings of landscapes, figures and still lifes. He combined his artistic practice with a spiritual quest that imbues his oeuvre with an existential dimension. The dissolved shapes in his works were debated in both art and politics.
This exhibition shows parts of Kylberg’s entire body of work, from the early paintings and cartoons from the 1910s, the children’s books and more colourful paintings from the 1920s, to his famous classical motifs from the 1930s and 40s. Kylberg’s breakthrough to the wider public came late, but he is counted as a key figure of Swedish art since the 1930s. The exhibition highlights the artist role and puts his paintings in the context of the period before, during and after the Second World War. For more information, please click.
