Den flygande holländaren
Flowing brushwork and vibrant colours distinguish the Swedish artist Carl Kylberg’s (1878-1952) paintings of landscapes, figures and still lifes. He combined his artistic practice with a spiritual quest that imbues his oeuvre with an existential dimension. The dissolved shapes in his works were debated in both art and politics.
This exhibition shows parts of Kylberg’s entire body of work, from the early paintings and cartoons from the 1910s, the children’s books and more colourful paintings from the 1920s, to his famous classical motifs from the 1930s and 40s. Kylberg’s breakthrough to the wider public came late, but he is counted as a key figure of Swedish art since the 1930s. The exhibition highlights the artist role and puts his paintings in the context of the period before, during and after the Second World War. For more information, please click.

Olle Olsson Hagalund ”Victor” Photo.Björn Petrén
Olle Olsson Hagalund could be called an expressive naivïst, but the word “unique” would also suffice. Few artists in Sweden have been so loved by so many! Olle Olsson’s oeuvre is distinguished by his warm attitude to people. This winter’s exhibition at Sven-Harry’s Art Museum invites the public to enjoy works of art from private collections that have rarely been shown.

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?

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
