The installation by lighting designer Svante Pettersson reflects upon the things that have always attracted people to move to cities. The freedom to think, speak and be who you want. To get to a safe haven. To be able to choose to be alone, completely anonymous, yet still surrounded by people – or to seek a new, self-selected community. It is about how we travel there, but also about how to retrospectively recall our journey.
Svante Pettersson has created a passage that illustrates this type of transformation. The passage moves be-tween the more intellectual case studies in the project rooms and the artistic works of Färgfabrikens main hall. His means of expression is the interaction between the surface colors and artificial light, which is such an important part of our urban environment.

A fan circles in an irregular orbit above our heads, water squirts up in cascades, and in another room we can walk in a labyrinthine architecture of coloured space. These works are part of the exhibition Olafur Eliasson: Reality machines, organised by Moderna Museet in association with ArkDes (the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design).

Experiment Stockholm is questioning the development and transition of the city of Stockholm. It is an on-going project that raises questions about and seeks to examine and experiment with strategies and solutions for dealing with the challenges of a rapidly growing Stockholm region. What kind of society are we building for future generations? How are we to cope with unforeseen events? How does and could the built and the green interact in the city environment?

This summer exhibition Superbruden (Superbroad) features Kristina Abelli Elander’s entire oeuvre from the 1970s to today. Gallery 3 is transformed into an inviting, dazzling fantasy world, with coloured lanterns, wall paintings, figures, drawings and comic strips. Meet Prinsessan Panik (Princess Panic) and other alter-egoes in Kristina Abelli Elander’s magical world.
Christina Abelli Elander belongs to the rebellious 70s generationen who released the super broad and set colous free. The contrasting colours pink and turquoise, purple and emerald green, chocolate brown and orange violated both the conservative tone on tone painting and premodern denomination painting. The released color is joined by fabric, needle and thread

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.
