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.
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.
This autom Nationalmuseum presents Hella Jongerius’s exhibition Breathing Colour which is a visual installation that features the results of her longstanding research into colour, shape, light and materials.
The studies become more in-depth with the help of works that she has selected from the museum’s collections. The visitor’s movement throughout the exhibition follows the change in daylight, from dawn till night time, through different colours and materials. Hella Jongerius was a part of the Dutch design group Droog in the 1990’s and she has designed textiles, porcelain and furniture for a number of international companies and she is also represented in the collections at the Nationalmuseum.
The exhibition Hella Jongerius – Breathing Colour is developed in partnership with the Design Museum in London.

The two sisters Lisbet and Gocken Jobs created ceramics and textiles that made Swedish homes blossom during the post-war period. Wild flower bouquets covers ceramic dishes and tiles while lingon- and blueberries are arranged into decorative patterns applied onto hand printed textiles. Folk culture with midsummer celebrations, people cheering and musicians playing are also found among the Jobs sisters’ motives.
A comprehensive exhibition comprising 134 works, including paintings and prints by, among others, Emil Nolde, Otto Mueller and Max Pechstein
The impact of social upheavels led the artists to a search for new lifestyles. The faster the changes have been, the stronger was the yearning for a new paradise, which the artists often found in harmony with nature and in the study of foreign cultures.
»Colors became charges of dynamite, they were expected to discharge light«, wrote André Derain about the Fauvists’ scandalous appearance at the Paris Salon d’Automne in 1905. With the foundation of the Dresden artist group Brücke (The Bridge) in early summer of 1905, Germany also set the course for change. Subsequently this new and emotive painting style was aimed at not only provoking the bourgeois taste, but as a means to shake up the established concepts of beauty.
The circle around the Neuen Künstlervereinigung München (New Artist’s Association of Munich) and the editorial department of the Munich almanac Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) set forth on a quest for a new introspection. Painting far outgrew the representational and new theoretical principles for the reconsideration of »primitive« art were established.

Paintings and sculptures by the 20th century’s most famous artists will fill Millesgården Art
Gallery this summer. The heading cites three of the some 50 artists presented in the exhibition, who contributed to making the 20th century the century of the art experiment, when art movements replaced one another and painters and sculptors expanded the boundaries of the very concept of art.
A generous loan from the Didrichsen Museum in Helsinki has enabled Millesgården to present an exhibition of sculptures by Henry Moore, Niki de Saint Phalle, Alberto Giacometti and Alexander Calder in addition to paintings by Wassily Kandinsky, Emil Nolde and Sonia Delaunay.
