Veronica Nygren (1940-2006) filled her art with everyday experiences and political awareness, with knowledge about Swedish crafts traditions and global influences, in a vibrant dialogue with art history and contemporary art. Nygren indefatigably put the potential of textiles to the test. Today, she stands out as a regenerator of textile art and design in post-war Sweden.

This exhibition is the first comprehensive retrospective of Nygren’s oeuvre, spanning from the early 1960s to the beginning of the 2000s. It features freehand weaving and applications, patterns and garments for the Mah-Jong label, along with personal and experimental tapestries and monumental commissioned public artworks.
Colour by Numbers is a permanent light installation in the tower at Telefonplan in Stockholm, Sweden. Everyone can change the colours in the tower with their mobile phone, by calling or using the app. The project is a collaboration between the interaction designer Loove Broms, the architect Milo Lavén and the artist Erik Krikortz.
