Marabouparkens konsthall 6 juni 2020–20 december 2020
In the summer of 2020, Marabouparken presents a large retrospective exhibition with works by Wanja Djanaieff – one of Sweden’s most influential textile designers. Djanaieff has been Head of Design at NK Design Group and Strömma Sweden, among others.
Her work became known to a wide audience when she designed clothes for the Swedish Olympic squad in Munich in 1972. The clothes, adorned with a pattern of yellow crowns on a blue background, also went on sale at NK and became a bestseller.
She has also worked as a scenographer, costume designer, professor and project manager. The exhibition at Marabouparken shows sketches, clothes and the iconic patterns that have come to be style-forming for an entire era.
Swedish Colour Centre Foundation invites you to an evening with lecture, discussion and colourfful mingle in connection with the International Colour Day.

Jury opinion: To find the future, it is important to look back, which the jury saw as a strong value in this winning proposal. The jury associates the proposal to Bauhaus geometric shapes and Itten’s color theory, which was created 100 years ago. The abstract classic geometric shapes clearly illuminate how colour affects shape. Accounting is educational and appealingly simple. This entry inspires in an innovative way and gives knowledge to the colour schemes of the future.
2:nd PRIZE: DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT
John Wattström, HDK Kandidatexamen i design
Jury’ opinion: A colour scheme in public space, which sucked the jury into an alternative world. Colour, shape, light and sound swept around us. The experience felt saturated and invited for reflection. The title is taken from Dylan Thomas’s poem where the main theme revolves around light and darkness and is a call to protest against the end of life. A competition entry that let color, light and shape express our uncertain future. This installation would be located at the UN Climate Summit.
Jury’ opinion: This contribution allows colour to create security for the forgotten place, the non-place. Form and colour are created with regard to nature and our planet. The competition entry will seek to challenge the future of colour with a focus on climate and biodiversity. This is an installation that addresses the discussion about who we choose colour for and creates discussion about what colour can contribute. How can a designer choose colour that not only benefits man but also nature and other species?

Prisad Färg – instituted by Swedish Colour Centre Foundation – works to strengthen the knowledge of colours. A colour design competition for newly graduated and students of design, architecture, visual communication and art in Sweden.
This is the eleventh book in a series of Swedish Counties and their colours. The authors interior designer Lena Anderson and human geographer Marja Lindblom give us a quick tour to World heritage Birka, Old Uppsala, Gustavianum, Löfsta bruk. and much more.
Previous books deal with Bohuslän, Gotland, Dalarna, Lappland, Närke, Skåne, Södermanland, Värmland, Västergötland. and Öland. Theese small books are intended as inspiration for diving into each province´s sights and activities, offering colour suggestions and functioning as tourist guides.
One of last year’s award winners in Prisad Färg has released a collection of textile blankets and pillows for Arket. Linnéas design was awarded by the Swedish Colour Center and garnished the Colour Center’s stand at Furniture & Light 2019.
The exhibition showcases interactive pieces, hybrid artefacts, graphic animations and tactile samples that have been developed through the encounter between mechanical and human, precision and imprecision, in the field of interactive architecture and digital design.
What appears to be a highly predictable process is in fact the result of fluid artistic investigation: architect and researcher Malgorzata Zboinska and her interdisciplinary team have extended the field of computational innovation by introducing imprecision, unpredictability, unpredictability, craft and co-creation with the machines into their research.
Opening Vernissage 5 November 2019 h. 18:00-21:00, tours with Artist November 6. Other event to be announced.
