Färgfabriken, Lövholmsbrinken 1 Stockholm
November 5-16, 2019

taktila modeller

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. 

The exhibition is the culmination of an artistic research project ”Arkitektoniska konvertibler: på väg mot ett alternativt konstnärligt förhållningssätt till att utforma interaktiva arkitektoniska omgivningar​” financed by the Swedish Research Council

Hella Jongerius – Breathing Colour

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.

BACK TO PARADISE – MASTERPIECES OF EXPRESSIONISM

20 February – 9 June 2019
Millesgården

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.

Frida Kahlo – painter and fashon icon

Victoria & Albert Museum, London

In 1954, following her death, Frida Kahlo’s possessions were locked away in La Casa Azul (The Blue House) in Mexico City, her lifelong home. Half a century later, her collection of clothing, jewellery, cosmetics and other personal items was discovered.

Millesgården, Lidingö
16 June – 2 September 2018

Ingen automatisk text tillgänglig.

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.

Gabrielle Münter – experimental colourist

Louisiana, Humlebaek, Denmak
3 May – 19 August 2018


Portrait of Marianne von Wereflin, 1909

German painterGabriele Münter (1877-1962) was an open-minded, experimental artist with an international network and extensive exhibition activities. During World War I she spent time in Stock­­holm and Copenhagen, where she had her artistic breakthrough in 1918 with her first solo exhibition.

Linz der Blaue See, 1954

Gabriele Münter  has not been widely acknowledged in the history of art until now. Her work has usually been seen and interpreted in the context of German Expressionism and with a focus on her relationship and collaboration with Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) in the time of the artist group “Der Blue Reiter” .


Much of what Münter created is still unknown,
but 100 years after Münter exhibited for the first time in Denmark, this will finally be remedied. The exhibition takes a present-day look at Münter’s work, which is presented in thematic sections – from the classic genres such as the portrait and landscape through interiors and abstractions to her interest in foreign cultures, folk art and children’s drawings.
